I use seeds when I make our bread, I add toasted hemp or sesame seeds to our kale salad and I raise black oil sunflowers to eat and feed to our chickens and wild birds.
Thanks for the info.!

My family enjoys sesame and sunflower seeds. Will try to add more to our diets.

My favorite are poppy seeds. But unlike hemp seeds, they can cause a false positive in drug testing.

I know plenty of people who eat the whole sunflower seed, shell and all. I have no idea if this is any better for you. I think it's mostly a matter of laziness.

These seeds are wonderful in our diet. We should know the way to include them in our diet. Some recipes with these seeds are given at

The calories listed for pumpkin seeds in shell and out of shell are the same. Does this mean the shell in indigestible and has no calories?

I LOVE seeds! There were times in my life when I could afford to get them - but they NEVER seem to go on sale - and they are WAY WAY too expensive for me now. When I can get some, somewhere, I take handsful - and eat a few at a time, so they last for a very long time. But that's probably too little to get the benefit. Does anyone know where or how to get them really, really cheap?

Just about any seed is a nutrition powerhouse, and many more are staples of our diets. Whole categories were left out of this article, not just chia seeds! ;-) How about beans, peas, lentils, corn, wheat, barley, almonds, pecans, filberts, peanuts, and many, many more. If you can put it in the ground and conditions are right, it will grow and make more of itself... it's a seed!
