Did you know that eating raw flax seeds, hemp seeds and chia seeds reduces inflammation?
Here are some dishes that I like to add seeds to:
Chia Seeds: Leslie’s Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie
Sunflower Seeds: Lemony Quinoa Salad with Toasted Sunflower Seeds
Hemp Seeds: Hemp Walnut Pie Crust
Flax Seeds: Cinnamon Banana Pancakes
I love using seeds to make smoothies, dressings (dairy free) seed milks, and for quick snacking. Seeds are great raw and toasted for garnishes, and cooked in pilafs and stuffing. Flax seeds are great for vegan pastries, replacing eggs. Hemp seeds are more nutritious raw. And hemp, flax and chia provide us with Omega 3s fatty acids.
Enjoy some seeds today!
