Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpking seeds are packed with iron! They also have many other super healthy minerals and benefits, but for me it is enough to know they give us loads of iron and proteins. My daughters aren’t too fond of meat, so I am always glad when they eat other sources of iron.


  • A pumpkin
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Spices


  • Clean the pumkin seeds from the stringy flesh, wash and dry them. 
  • In a frying pan heat up a tiny bit of oil.
  • Add the pumkin seeds and frequently stir.
  • When they brown, pass them in a bowl.
  • Season with salt and spices (we used paprika).

A friend kindly pointed out a need to take care and energies myself… what better excuse to make energy balls!

Last Christmas I met this lovely New Zelander and she gave me this amazing recipe to boost our energise (obviously I have lost her previous handwritten recipe.. so this is the best I can remember)! I love them 🙂 And they are made with the most obscure, but powerful, ingredients I have ever heard of.


  • 1 tbsp spirulina powder
  • 1 tbsp maca powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon tahini
  • 2 tbsp ground almonds
  • 12 dates (mehjoli), steamed and then blended


  1. Steam the dates for 10mins to soften them up. Mix them with honey and coconut oil and blend them.
  2. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Form little one bite truffle balls (it is a very sticky job)
  4. Roll them in different finishes (coconut, almonds, walnuts or crazy colored cake decorating things) and gently push the decoration in.
  5. Eat.
  6. You can store them in an air-tight container for up 10 days.
