With all the buzz surrounding the health benefits of nuts, it’s easy to overlook their undersized counterparts. Seeds are proof that Mother Nature works in exceptional ways.
Of the bearers of life from the ground up, seeds contain all the makings for an entire plant. And don’t let their diminutive size fool you: seeds have a big nutritional impact.
Most edible seeds contain a powerful blend of healthy fats, plant-based protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. That makes a daily seed habit a recipe for longevity. They’ve been nourishing various cultures around the world for thousands of years.
Not to be overlooked is the fact that seeds such as hemp and sunflower are downright delicious and extremely versatile in the kitchen, which makes it easy to enjoy them every day. And since most are budget friendly, you can go nuts for seeds without taking too much of a bite out of your bank account.
