A Fun Seed Mix


Happy Sunday My Good Friends,

I have a great seed mix for you.

If the birds like seeds, so should you! I’m sure you like the other thing that the birds and the bees do, there’s no reason why you should not try this too.

You should use this seed mix to hike up the health ratio of your smoothies, your yogurts or ice cream sundaes and even your muffin batter or cake batter. It adds a lovely touch of crunch and your kids will not reject it outright. I promise.

In the interest of full disclosure, I discovered this on a cooking show called Solution Gourmande on Canal Vie and the inventive chef Marie-Michelle Garon. The show airs on Sunday mornings. http://www.canalvie.com/emissions/solutions-gourmandes-a-moins-de-5/

The recipe is quite simple!

Why is it so healthy?

Flax seed is a healthy source of fiber both soluble and insoluble. It is chock full of Omega 3’s. The flax seed is an important contributor to good gastric health.

Sesame seed provides you with a healthy dose of calcium and magnesium. Your bones will thank you for consuming sesame. Also, it has cancer repelling properties.

Pumpkin seed helps provide a good night sleep and is also an excellent source of fiber which contributes to ensure regular bowel movements.

Sunflower seed provides you with a healthy young looking skin, it helps reduce stress levels and it helps maintain bone mass and bone density. It also helps your heart. It can also help with your respiratory tract.

What’s the bottom line?

The bottom line is this fun seed mix has impacts that will help your body from hair to toes.
