Like to know a really easy way to help get your daily intake of essential minerals, fibre, omega 3 & 6 and amino acids? Add some SEEDS to your diet. Sue Nelson wrote a fantastic article on seeds just a month ago in the SMHerald. I couldn’t agree more. As Australians – due to poor soil quality, poor food choices (processed foods etc) and poor digestion – we are generally mineral deficient. Most dieticians agree that it’s not vitamins we have to worry about so much but minerals. Below I have listed some common seeds you can use to boost your diet – their benefits etc.
Where appropriate, I have also mentioned any cautions from the Ayurvedic perspective, as not all seeds are appropriate for all people at all times.
