There are many nutritious and delicious seeds for summer salads. I love seeds and I sprinkle them on pretty much everything: Soups, porridge, scrambled eggs. Yes, I know they have a tendency to get stuck in your teeth so you need to invest in some dental floss, but it's so worth the extra 5 minutes spent de-seeding your chops! Don't let their size fool you. These minute foodstuffs pack a nutritional punch and sprouting certain seeds means that their starch is transformed to a slow-release carbohydrate and also means they are more readily absorbed into the system. Seeds can be sprouted in a special sprouting jar, which makes it super simple! Seeds are amazing for so many reasons, for example they promote healthy skin and hair and protect the heart and blood vessels. Here are my favorite sprouts and seeds for your summer salads so as well as entertaining your friends, you will be contributing to their health and well-being!
1. Sesame Seeds
Sesame seeds are brilliant seeds for summer salads. They are a great source of Vitamin E and therefore are amazing in terms of improving the skin and helping the heart and nervous system. They are also high in calcium, which is necessary for strong bones and teeth. Sesame seeds are of the super seed variety in that they are so versatile. They can be used in stir-fries, baking and they can also be ground for dressings and spreads. Open sesame!
