I love Rawnola! It is easy to make and full of nutrients, you can add some vegetal milk, coconut yogurt or even sprinkle it on your salads.
Cashews and walnuts are a good source of potassium, iron and zinc. My favourites are almonds, I used to think that they were part the nut family when actually they are seeds from the almond’s fruits. Almonds contains : Biotin, vitamin E, vitamin B12, manganese, magnesium,fibre.
Adding a handful of almonds in your daily routine can boost energy, strengthen the immune system, improve skin health, reduce heart disease and help loosing weight. I think of almonds as a magic seed.
Pumpkin and sunflower seeds are a very good source of protein, rich in iron, vitamin E, magnesium and omega 3.
Fennel seeds are rich in fibre, they are a concentrate source of minerals, iron, calcium, potassium and manganese.
Amaranth is one of my precious little seed: gluten free, it contains calcium, potassium and iron. It is also a very good source of protein and is a very versatile so can be used in many different ways.
