Quinoa with Seeds and Vegetable-Avocado Mix

Posted on Posted in Main dishes

Seeds are great for our health. They are healthy sources of vitamins, minerals, protein, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that are essential for growth, development and good cell functions.

Hemp and Flax Seeds are considered a super food. They are rich in omega-3 which we often miss in our diet and which can lead to chronic diseases. Luckily I used seeds in my recipe.
 
           Tip:  Seeds come in many varieties and you can make your dish everytime different by using different seeds.
