Healthy tip

I adore seeds. These tiny powerhouses are packed with fibre, plant nutrients, protein and good fats and provide a more natural energy than any other food. The benefits of eating seeds are endless. They help move our food along the digestive tract and lower inflammation in the gut. They also help lower our blood glucose and keep us satiated for a long period of time. Like nuts, seeds should be a regular part of our diet since they contain vital, high quality healthy fats, including mono-unsaturated and omega 3’s which are essential for good functioning of many of our bodily systems. These little wonder seeds are so versatile and can be added to anything!
