Seeds make for a great snack. You can either eat them on their own, or add them to your smoothies, salad or just about any food. Apart from being super nutritious, they also bulk up the meal and make it more filling. If you’re still not sure which seeds should be on your shopping list, here are our favorite few:
1. Pomegranate Seeds: These tiny juicy seeds are low in calories, packed with antioxidants and fat-burning vitamin C. They add a burst of color and flavor to bland, boring salads.
4. Pumpkin Seeds: Pepitas are light and nutty, but are a powerhouse of iron that fuels you up with energy. Their mild, nutty flavor works for several recipes.
5. Flax Seeds: These seeds contain cancer-thwarting compounds called lignans and omega-3 fatty acids that can decrease disease-causing inflammation and heart issues. They’re also one of the best vegetarian sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
