Why you should include edible seeds in your diet


Most of us hesitate when it comes to including edible seeds into our diets.  This is perhaps because of us overlooking the nutritious values that these seeds bring to the table.

For instance, eating just a tablespoon of chia seeds will give you about 19 percent of recommended daily fiber intake. Apart from these, it is also rich in magnesium, calcium, iron and other essential fatty acids.

Flaxseeds, meanwhile, are rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Vitamin B1, B2 and B6 which also comes from these provides us with a boost of energy and helps in maintaining a healthy nervous system. Roasted pumpkin seeds are a great source of zinc, copper, and selenium as well.
