Stop going nuts, and turn to seeds! Just like nuts, seeds are full of protein and fiber and will give you an energy boost when snacked on throughout the day. Here are five types of seeds that are delicious and good for you.
- Pumpkin seeds: Pumpkin seeds aid in lowering cholesterol, promote good prostate health, and are high in plant sterols and phytochemicals. And they're a good source of not only protein and fiber, but also potassium and magnesium. Here's a recipe on how to roast them to perfection.
- Chia seeds: Chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber, and calcium. Throw them in your cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, muffins, or smoothies, or add them to a salad or potatoes. Try chia in any of these chia seed recipes.
