Do you have any seeds in your life? I don’t mean birdseed, I mean pumpkin, sunflower, hemp, chia, flaxseeds, sesame and more. Seeds have so many nutritious elements, apart from fibre, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and healthy fats. A sprinkle of seeds on your cereal, salads, yoghurt, curries or any other food that you can think of will just give you that little bit of extra boost to your diet without you having to eat too much extra.
Seeds have been seen to help with the reduction of blood pressure, cholesterol (that’s because fibre is a sponge) and a reduction in blood glucose levels. I recommend to my clients to make a mix of seeds that they like and put them in a bottle and put them on the table so everyone can sprinkle them on their food. This is also a good way to replace the salt shaker at the table.
Every little bit helps remember and your gut bugs will ferment some of the fibre from these seeds which will release the antioxidants and produce products that are beneficial to your health and your gut health.
