Pumpkin Seeds

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyoone- I roasted pumpkin seeds with non stick cooking spray and some salt. Any idea on points for these? I know the spray and salt are both 0. Thanks! They are my weakness this time of year! :)

Wow .. it kind of surprised me, but probably shouldn't have.

According to a food list i have it lists 1 Tbl = 1 point (same as sunflower seeds). I was thinking of roasting some tomorrow, but i may rethink that!

 

Calorie king says 1 ounce raw pumpkin seeds (142 seeds) = calories 165;fat 13;fiber 1.1 = 4.2 points!

 

A LOT more fat in those than i thought!!

Wow! I'm really surprised as well! I thought that they would have been much lower in points. I thought that because they had so much fiber, they wouldn't be THAT many points. Eek! I may rethink roasting some pumpkin seeds!:eek:

I wonder if that is seeds including the shells or not.

 

If you eat them shell and all you can get a lot more for your Point.

 

I used to know, before I turned up allergic to them :(

1 oz of shelled pumpkin seeds (about 142 seeds) is 4 points. About the same as most nuts (peanuts, almonds...)

 

Pumpkin Seeds:

 

155 cals

1g fiber

13g fat

 

Almonds (about 22 nuts):

 

165 cals

3g fiber

14g fat
