There are lots of things you can toss into a salad or use to top your yogurt, but have you ever thought about sprinkling in some seeds?
"People don't realize that hemp seeds can be a great source of Vitamin E," registered dietician Amy Jamieson-Petonic said. "Vitamin E is an antioxidant in our body. It helps to reduce these free-radicals, these harmful chemicals that can increase our risk of diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer."
Chia seeds are also a good source of heart-healthy fats, while sunflower seeds are high in Vitamin E. Sesame seeds are high in antioxidants, and pumpkin seeds have been shown to lower your bad cholesterol and help prevent muscle weakness.
Dieticians say one-two tablespoons of seeds a day should do the trick, since they tend to be high in calories.
