I’ll admit it—my workday lunches can get pretty boring. I always think I’m going to finally make use of all those delicious recipes I’ve been pinning away, but then nighttime rolls around and I’m too busy watching really important things like The Bachelorette and Vampire Diaries. And then morning comes, and I’m running around like a headless chicken and I’m lucky if I remember my keys and bus pass on the way out the door, let alone find time to throw a tasty lunch together.
The seeds scooped from a pumpkin, also known as pepitas, offer plenty of protein and magnesium, and 1/4 cup delivers a third of your daily requirement of immunity-protecting zinc.

“It's funny: I always imagined when I was a kid that adults had some kind of inner toolbox full of shiny tools: the saw of discernment, the hammer of wisdom, the sandpaper of patience. But then when I grew up I found that life handed you these rusty bent old tools - friendships, prayer, conscience, honesty - and said 'do the best you can with these, they will have to do'. And mostly, against all odds, they do.”―Anne Lamott
As a mother, and as someone who has an amazing mother, I feel it is my responsibility to tell you that Mother’s Day is going to be here in a little over one short month. That gives you about 5 weeks or so to find the perfect gift for the person who, in addition to one million other things, may have spent her birthday in 20 hours of labor, thereby missing going out to eat for her birthday dinner at a swanky restaurant. And okay, Southern daughter, you ARE the best birthday present I ever have or will get, but there’s still that 20 hours of labor thing.
