Sowing Seeds of Nutrition

Looking to establish a healthy diet that includes more plant-based protein, healthy fats, and fiber? Add seeds!  Seeds are tiny plant embryos that contain the food and nutrients needed to start the growth of a plant. This makes seeds a great source of a variety of nutrients like heart-healthy fats, protein, fiber and a number of essential vitamins and minerals.  Flax, chia, and hemp seeds are plant-based sources of heart-healthy omega-3 fats which may lower the risk of heart disease by reducing inflammation in the body.  Check out this guide to seeds to learn about their individual benefits and how to incorporate them into your diet.
