Sprout! Sprout! Let it all out! These are the things I can snack about. . . come on, I'm talking to you. Bet you didn't think that nutrition and 80s bands went together. Well, they go together just like this bag of delicious: Living Intentions' blending of the flavors of barbeque and the crunch of sprouted pumpkin seeds. That texture is the critical foundation under the spicy-strong seasonings of cumin, chili, and turmeric. One bite leads to the next: salty, smokey, and oh-so-satisfying.
These little morsels might look only like powder-dusted hyper-colorful pumpkin seeds but they are your supercharged ticket to snack-time satiation. Supercharged from sprouting, and supercharged from the awesome seasonings applied to each and every seed. The assortment of spice and smoke adds amazing flavor but the nutritional punch comes from turmeric, ashwagandha, and holy basil. It's the frosting on this savory cupcake.
In this recipe you'll find a perfect balance. I kept reaching for bite after handful after chomp, enjoying the salty smokiness. These seeds have just enough crunch, just enough snap, and just enough spice.
In a world with endless snacking choices, go for the bag with the most nutrition, flavor, and pure fun. Go smokey, and go crunchy.

Soaking and sprouting are ancient techniques, developed by our wise ancestors to make certain foods, like nuts, seeds and grains, more nutritious and easier to digest. These foods evolved chemical defense mechanisms to protect themselves until the proper growing conditions came about — enough moisture to help them burgeon into sprouts. Most nuts, seeds, and grains simply aren’t easily digested unless they’re soaked for a while, to awaken the mechanisms that say, “Hey, time to sprout!” and unleash an amazing series of biochemical transformations. The soaking and sprouting process brings natural resting enzymes to life, increasing bioavailable nutrients. Increased nutrients and live enzymes aid digestion and strengthen the body’s natural healing process, increasing vital energy and wellness. The soaking and sprouting process also minimizes or eliminates nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances such as enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (tannins), and goitrogens. We recommend soaking and sprouting any nuts, seeds and grains that you plan to eat (unless someone else has already done it for you). The soak/sprout/dehydration process takes a bit of planning ahead (and a dehydrator), but it’s well worth it for the health benefits it confers. It also makes nuts and seeds taste amazing — extra-buttery and satisfyingly crispy-crunchy.
Pumpkin seeds are a powerful superfood that everybody should be eating every day. They’ve been used medicinally for thousands of years, and their health benefits are off the charts. They’re loaded with magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, and vitamin K, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and key amino acids like tryptophan and glutamate. Recent studies (none sponsored by Big Pumpkin) are piling up, all underscoring the positive health effects of pumpkin seeds.
Enjoy any time of the day, morning, noon, night, or midnight!
