Try natural pumpkin seeds
We love these pumpkin seeds from Faithful to Nature. There are no additives or preservatives and the packaging is compostable and biodegradable (bonus points!). This easily digestible source of plant protein is also a source of magnesium, zinc and iron, it’s high in omega-3 fatty acids, a source of fibre for healthy digestion… and high in tryptophan, an amino acid that promotes healthy sleep.
