Those who have stopped (or never had been) eating beef can get, gram for gram, practically the same amount of protein with pumpkin seeds as this notoriously known protein-rich meat, less all of the gmo feed, drugs, & hormones injected into these creatures that are raised for years & slaughtered simply for one simple meal that is easily forgotten.
1/2 a cup of pumpkin seeds provides you with 92% of your RDA of magnesium (America's #1 mineral deficiency, which is responsible for over 300 known bodily processes).
Pumpkin seeds: are high in zinc (which battles osteoporosis); lower depression (due to l-tryptophan within); and are immensely rich in an array of vitamins & minerals.
The next time your doctor recommends that you eat artery-clogging meat for protein, know that you have a true alternative that spares you of much upcoming pain & bodily conflict. Pumpkin seeds actually lower cholesterol, instead of raising it.
