A healthy party dip alternative from the website SuperFoodsRX. Pumpkin seeds are sooo good for you - In addition to a mega amount of zinc, they are also a very good source of iron, copper, protein, magnesium and monounsaturated fats, fight cholesterol and lower your risk for certain cancers. This spread maintains a nutty consistency, is slightly spicy and is great alongside fresh, raw veggies (carrots, celery or cauliflower). Remember that a little goes a long way! Be sure to use a good-quality light mayonnaise made with heart-healthy fats like grapeseed, canola, or soy oil.
