1. Chia Seeds
Chia seeds have been leading the superfood train for some time. Why are they so good for you? Because they are full of antioxidants. Antioxidants fight against free radicals in your body, which can damage cells and lead to diseases like cancer. Chia seeds also have a huge amount of protein for such a tiny seed, so vegetarians or vegans can get their protein in with chia seeds.
Flaxseed is full of antioxidants, fiber, and high in omega-3’s. Get flaxseeds into your diet by grinding them up and adding them into smoothies, on your morning oatmeal, or leave them whole and sprinkle them into salads or homemade granola.
Here’s a recipe for Energy Balls that includes chia seed and flaxseed.
3. Hemp Seeds
Technically hemp seeds are a fruit, and they look like little sunflower seeds. These tiny seeds pack a serious punch.
Full of amino acids, rich in magnesium, iron, and zinc, they also have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help if you deal with arthritis, eczema, or asthma. On top of all this they are full of protein.
Sprinkle them on practically anything- they have a sweet nutty taste.|
