Seeds are a great source of mood-boosting essential fats, yet often lacking from many diets. They are also portable and easy to add to many dishes. Adding more seeds to your diet is one of those super simple changes that can make a big difference to your health.
I like to grind a mixture of seeds in advance and store them in the fridge in an airtight container. Grinding the seeds makes them easier for your body to digest, absorb and enjoy all the goodness from. I add them to salads and smoothies, to porridge, bircher muesli and homemade granola or even as a crunchy topping onto steamed vegetables.
Super Seed Mix
- Take equal quantities of flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and hemp seeds.
- Mix the seeds together then add them to a herb or coffee grinder
- Grind the seeds until you have a fine powder
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge – this is important as the oils contained within the seeds are easily damaged by light and air – storing them this way helps to protect and keep them fresher for longer.
