About:

Spiced Roasted Seed Snack Mix, is a simple but insanely delicious natural snack that is so much fun to make with your kids. Crunchy fresh roasted seeds that are spiced with spices of choice and made for the ultimate fun fall snack.

For those with nut allergies (or just looking to mix things up), seeds provide many of the same nutritional benefits as nuts.

Sprinkle a handful of roasted seeds on your salads, soups or rice dishes for an extra boost of nutrients.

Health Benefits:

Sunflower Seeds – Vitamin E – contributes to the protection of cells and prevention of cardiovascular disease

Pumpkin Seeds – Immune-boosting zincs Healthy unsaturated fats, good for lowering cholesterol
Phytoestrogens for hormone balancing and reducing heart risk

Sesame Seeds – Calcium for healthy bones (good for non-dairy eaters) and Phytosterols for a healthy heart

Hemp Seeds – Omega 3 & Omega 6 in a perfect balance – good for your circu latory system

Linseed – Omega 3 for a healthy heart and brain; Phytoestrogens for hormone balancing and reducing heart risk
High Fibre

There are two “types” of flaxseed: brown and golden. Although the color and price differ, the nutritional benefits are the same. The brown flaxseed is less expensive than the golden, but because golden flaxseed is lighter in color, it’s easier to hide in a variety of foods
