SUPER SEED MIX - Awesome for breakfast, snacks or to sprinkle on salads as a healthy fat, protein and fibre booster.
A few months ago, I realized that my teenage son was not doing so well with his daily breakfast of mostly nut based granola. Thinking about it it makes sense, nuts are super high in omega 6 which can drive inflammation. Certain seeds on the other hand, like hemp and chia skew a bit more towards omega 3 fatty acids which can help the body to manage inflammation. So, I got to work on this mix - you will notice that I did include a bit of my traditional nuts and seeds mix but the balance is much heavier towards the seeds. Beware you don't overdo it though, hemp seeds may be tiny but they are mighty rich...stick to the portion sizes and savour each bite, if you don't inhale your food you will find that this is quite satisfying even if your bowl isn't overflowing.
