Roasted Pumpkin Seed Recipe!

Fall means pumpkin season and pumpkin carving with the kids or grandkids is always a good time. However, no matter how much carving or filling we are doing, we should not waste food! Hang on to the pumpkin seeds, as they are a source in the Paleo diet and to be a satisfying, crunchy treat! Pumpkin seeds are also a good source of protein, magnesium, zinc, and omega-3s.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

This is vegan, gluten-free and fits perfect for the holiday season!

Ingredients

1 cup pumpkin seeds

2 tsp olive oil

1 tsp cumin

½  tsp garlic salt

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp paprika

Dash of cayenne pepper and cinnamon 

Directions

  1. .  Clean out that pumpkin!
  2. .  Wash the pulp from the seeds (soaking the seeds in warm water for an hour will help this process).
  3. .   Allow the seeds to dry for 24 hours.
  4. .   Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  5. .   Combine all ingredients and place in 8×8 pan, coating the seeds with the seasoning mixture.
  6. .   Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15-20 minutes.

This can be a great snack during your Paleo Challenge!

Stay focused,

Teresa

Cross Cuisines: Pete’s Beef Jerky!

In every marriage there is division of labor and mine is no exception.

Over the past 30 years, my husband Peter has been the master of our backyard grill and has had a particular passion for cooking smoked foods. So when I launched Cross Cuisines and included beef jerky on the menu, I didn’t have to look far to find the right man for the job. Pete is all about the details—he researched beef jerky on the Web and in cookbooks and talked to family and friends in search of the perfect recipe.

After a few weeks of tweaking and tinkering, he’s come up with a jerky recipe that’s big on taste and packed with protein, but low in calories and sodium. Unlike commercial jerky that can pack up to 600 mg of salt into a single serving and can be high in fat, Pete’s jerky has only trace amounts of sea salt and 70 calories per 1 oz. serving. It’s also incredibly lean because he uses grass-fed top round beef and then hand-trims off the fat before marinating it overnight and then grinding it. Once ground, Pete adds his special blend of seasonings (sorry, that’s classified information) and pounds it into a jerky gun, which cranks out tender, delicious jerky strips. From there, the strips are placed in a commercial dehydrator for seven to 10 hours.

“I knew our little home dehydrator was never going to be big enough,” Pete says. “Beef jerky is the biggest snack on the Paleo Diet so I needed something that could handle the volume.”

The dehydrator is taking up valuable counter space, but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make. Beef jerky is the ideal Paleo snack because it’s packed with protein, is digested quickly and has a low glycemic index that keeps your blood sugar level steady.

I tell people it’s the best thing that every happened to me because it’s helped me stick to the Paleo Diet, snacking that curbs my appetite with none of the guilt.

Our jerky comes two ways: Pete’s Jerky, $5:50 for 2 ounces or our Jerky Snack Pack, $4.99 per bag featuring jerky, nuts, dried cranberries and cherries.
