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/
