What is fall without pumpkins?! There are always plenty of pumpkins to carve up around Halloween and a great way to make use of pumpkin seeds is to roast them for an easy, healthy snack! So, don’t throw ‘em out!

First, how do you get the strings off pumpkin seeds?! When you first scoop the seeds out of the pumpkin, it seems like it will be impossible to separate the sticky, clingy strings from the seeds. But all you have to do is rinse the mass of seeds and strings under cold water and the seeds will separate easily.

Ok, now what?

  1. Measure pumpkin seeds. Place in a medium saucepan. Add 2 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of salt to the pan for every half cup of pumpkin seeds. Bring the salted water and pumpkin seeds to a boil. Let simmer for 10 minutes; remove from heat and drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 400° F. Coat the bottom of a roasting pan or thick baking sheet with olive oil, about a teaspoon. Spread the seeds out in a single later and toss to coat them with oil.
  3. Bake on the top rack until the seeds begin to brown, 5-20 minutes depending on the size of the seeds.
  4. When lightly browned, remove pan from oven and let cool!

Deviled eggs get extra creepy-crawly when they’re topped with… spiders! To make eight scary spider eggs, cut 12 black olives in half vertically. Place one half in the center of each egg to form the body, then slice each remaining olive half into four sections to create legs! 

For a protein-packed snack, try these hummus-filled eggs topped with kalamata olives and smoked paprika. 

Ingredients

  • 8 hard-boiled eggs, cut in half lengthwise, yolks removed 
  • ½ cup prepared hummus
  • 12 Kalamata olives, cut in half vertically
  • Ground smoked paprika (to taste; optional)

Instructions

  1. Fill each egg white half with 1.5 tsp hummus.
  2. Decorate your eggs with olive spiders! Sprinkle with paprika and serve!

I am loving my morning reading habit. Just finished my third book since starting this habit through Miracle Morning that you suggested! I love my morning (me) time. I actually am more productive throughout the day, am eating better, staying more positive, and sleeping so much better. I love the changes because of Miracle Morning and you! I have decided to start a new business. Wow! I wasn't even thinking that going in. I just have opened my mind and listened to my heart and decided to go after what I want. Life changing!

I am incredibly grateful that a friend recommended I connect with Holly! I was struggling to lose weight after having my first child and didn't know how to accomplish my goals while balancing other life commitments. Being part of Holly's support has given me the tools to succeed and it has been truly life-changing. Over a year and a half later, I still enjoy the connections with Holly's group and continued support to keep things fresh and to keep working on "being at my best."
