Seeds are incredibly beneficial for overall hormone health, which I talk about here. They also provide healthy fat and quality protein to help balance your blood sugar and avoid sugar cravings.
There are so many ways to include seeds – easily – in your daily diet. I eat them every day – my favorite way is in tahini (sesame seed butter), but over the years I've developed more seed recipes than I can count.
Here's a favorite recipe, straight outta' my book, Hormone Intelligence, that makes for a satisfying breakfast with some almond milk or over your favorite yogurt (organic whole milk dairy, cashew, or coconut). It's also a great snack – just a handful or two in the afternoon is so satisfying and energizing.
A serving of this muesli provides 1 healthy fat, 1 grain, 1 fruit, 2 nuts, 2 seeds + protein
