Mob Wives: Pumpkin Seeds, Really Renee, Pumpkin Seeds

The Truth About Pumpkin Seeds

Well Renee announces Junior is/has moved in to her house in episode 8. She claims it’s for AJ’s benefit, but the other women have their doubts. One reason that caused Renee to allow Junior to move in is that he went out and bought her David’s Pumpkin Seeds. Yes, pumpkin seeds!  Now my interest is peaked as to why Renee loves pumpkin seeds so much, almost as much as she loves Junior. Carla smirked at the pumpkin seeds comment, and Karen said, “Pumkin seeds, really Renee? Pumpkin seeds?”

Turns out pumpkin seeds are very nutritious. Who knew? How many of us have been carving pumpkins every Halloween and throwing out the seeds? Well Renee may be having the last laugh on us all. Pumpkin seeds are nothing to laugh at.

Pumpkin seeds are great for prostate health, especially for enlarged prostates.

Pumpkin seeds are good for helping the bladder work better.

They are a great natural anti-inflammatory, so you don’t need to take drugs.

They are a good source of L-tryptophan, which is a natural treatment to fight depression.

They are high in zinc! This is good protection from osteoporosis and preventing colds.

Some studies allege that pumpkin seeds may help prevent kidney stones.

In some parts of the world, pumpkin seeds are used to treat tapeworms and other parasites.

They are a great source of magnesium! A half cup of seeds has 92% of your daily requirement.

They contain certain compounds that help lower cholesterol.

They are a rich source of tryptophan, which is used by the body to make serotonin, which has a calming effect on the mind and for good sleep and as aide for insomnia.

Put them in pesto sauce instead of pine nuts, put them in meatloaf, salads and anywhere you can think of because they are very healthy.

They are also said to boost the libido and increase the sex drive.

*Baseball players eat them as an healthy alternative to chewing tobacco (for Linda)

So Karen, I think I can speak for Renee when I say, “Yes, pumpkin seeds Karen, pumpkin seeds!”

Chiara you could've began with,

"They are also said to boost the libido and increase the sex drive."

and ended with

"They are also said to boost the libido and increase the sex drive."

I am off to get me a case.

Make sure they are David's and Amazon has a case of 12 on sale. I hear they are the best and they are the only ones Renee will eat.

I ordered mine right after I typed "boost the libido and increase the sex drive." ;>)

Yep, that's why Junior bought them for Renee. He figured they would be like buying her Ecstacy. Now, don't get me wrong; we all know Renee is my fav...I just know she can't help herself when it comes to Junior and I do hope, along with all of you, that she doesn't get crushed. Crushed much like a pumpkin seed shell gets crushed...
