Pumpkin seeds are packed with zinc and fatty acids that benefit the heart, says Esther Blum, a nutritionist in New York City and author of "Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous." So don't toss them out after carving your jack-o'-lantern. Lightly toast them in the oven (at 250 degrees for 20 minutes), and then sprinkle with sea salt -- or try this spiced version
. Enjoy while waiting for trick-or-treaters! (What to do with the rest of the pumpkin? Get recipe ideas here.
