Seeds contain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients necessary to create new life. Researchers have found that certain seeds are super foods, capable not only of packing a nutritional punch, but also lowering blood pressure, easing arthritis, and keeping cholesterol in check. The National Institutes of Health recommend 4 to 5, half-ounce servings of seeds each week as part of a nutritional, heart-healthy diet. Seeds come in lots of tasty varieties. Use your favorites as a seasoning on salads, bagels and toast, or eat a handful for a quick, filling snack.
