We always hear of the many ways that seeds such as flax, pumpkin and sunflower can benefit you. But it can be difficult to know how to incorporate them into your diet, especially if you do not enjoy just eating them by the handful. I was really pleased when I found Linwood’s Organic seed mix as the seeds have all been milled and can easily be sprinkled into you cereal, porridge, or yoghurt.
It has been said that milled seeds are better than whole because the body is not able to digest all of the nutrients when the seeds are consumed whole and some of the nutrients will be excreted. Milled seeds are easy to digest and your body absorbs all of the goodness.
I buy the organic Linwood seed mix containing flax, sunflower, pumpkin, sesame seeds and goji berries. I simply sprinkle it into a yoghurt along with some muesli each morning. It is a great way to get a variety of seeds that you would not usually have on a daily basis. It is recommended that you have two 15g servings each day. I tend to have one serving per day as I only have it for breakfast.
Different variations of the seed mix can be bought from Holland and Barrett or some branches of Sainsbury’s supermarket. The average retail price in Sainsbury’s is £4.99 and it can be slightly more expensive in Holland and Barrett. I would say that it is worth the price because buying individual packets of the different seeds would cos t much more. Give them a try!
