The Chia Seed Diet. Flax seed shakes. Quinoa dishes at many favorite restaurants.
Seeds are quickly becoming a healthy diet staple, especially since seeds are so easy to incorporate into meals. Add them to cereal, baked goods, rice dishes, yogurt, salads, or eat them alone as a snack on the go. No matter how seeds are used, they are giving the body great nutrition.
Although the health benefits of seeds haven’t been as heavily researched as nuts, seeds have now been found to be excellent sources of fiber, selenium, vitamin E, protein, zinc, and iron – all of which are components of a healthy diet. Some seeds can also be high in omega fatty acids and antioxidants, which boost immunity and longevity. Finally, seeds can sometimes help in curbing cravings by acting as a healthy snack.
In response to this growing trend of seeds in diets, SuperiorNutStore.com, an online retailer of bulk nuts, is expanding its offering of bulk seeds to include increasingly popular chia seeds, flax seed, quinoa, poppy seeds, caraway, and sesame seeds. Currently, the selection offers pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
Looking to increase dietary intake of seeds like those offered in the new selection at SuperiorNutStore.com? Seeds are best enjoyed in small amounts since they’re a more concentrated source of fat and calories. Small amounts, about 1/8 to ¼ cup, a few times per week seem to be the target.
As for saving on seeds, the answer is to purchase in bulk. Bulk seed offerings like those from SuperiorNutStore.com allow for dieters to save on their supply of seeds, so it’s easier to incorporate them into more dishes.
The expanded line of seeds, including organic seeds, can be found in the Seeds Bulk Selection at SuperiorNutStore.com.
Since Superior Nut Company started in 1929, it’s been committed to providing people with bulk nuts, dried fruits, and seeds that help contribute to a healthy diet. Today at SuperiorNutStore.com, the Superior Nut Company announces expanded offerings to meet changing nutritional needs.
