Everyone knows that seeds are good for you. Right?
All we hear is flax this, chia that, hemp shmep,
doesn't matter which seeds, you have to just get them in you!
The number 1 NO NO is "never buy pre ground"
They are rubbish. As soon as those tiny little seeds are smashed open they starts to lose all their magical powers. Then they are packed in a bags, placed on supermarket shelves where they sit for lord knows how long. By the time you get it you may as well eat a cereal box as it will contain more nutrition.
The number 2 NO NO is "never eat seeds whole"
Your body cannot extract the nutrition, so you will poop them out, like a bird.
Buy a coffee grinder just for your seeds and spices, then never EVER EVER buy powdered ANYTHING again. Grind your own curry powders, seeds, dried garlic, ginger, lime, turmeric, the list is endless.
