That Protein I Heart Pumpkin and Chia Seed Super Protein
Pumpkin seeds from the Styrian region are nutritional powerhouses that some call “Green Gold”. They are rich in phosphorus, magnesium and manganese and are also a good source of other minerals including zinc, iron and copper as well as being a high source of protein and vitamin K, a good source of favourable plant sterols and a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids.
Chia seeds (Salvia Hispanica) are packed with essential vitamins and minerals. The chia plant was first cultivated for human use over 4000 years ago in South and Central America, by the Aztecs, Mayans and other native American tribes. They relied on the seed as a staple food crop. Chia seeds were eaten whole, or ground into flour, pressed to release a rich, nutritious oil and used in some traditional medicines. As well as being favoured by ancient civilisations, chia remains an important food source today for a native American tribe who live in the steep canyons of the northern Mexico desert. The Tarahumura are renowned for their distance running abilities, able to keep going for hundreds of miles in the desert heat.
