They may be tiny but seeds, whether it be sunflower, linseed, pumpkin, sesame or flaxseed are all packed full of polyunsaturated fats making them an extremely nutritious addition to bread, cereals, baked goods and even salads.
Long chain unsaturated fats, the type of fats known to have numerous health benefits are primarily found in deep sea cold fish and there are few plant based sources. Just a teaspoon of seeds though can contain as much as 1g of these powerful fats. Increase your intake of seeds by looking for the densest grain breads you can and some varieties may even have extra linseed or pumpkin seeds added.
Other ways to incorporate these dietary wonders into your day include choosing sesame and linseed based snack bars and crackers or even sprinkling some pumpkin or sunflower seeds on your salad or use them as a topping on breakfast cereal, homemade muffins and cakes.
