Add This to Your Diet This Week:

 Mason jar is the nut mix I sprinkle on salad at lunch.

Beneficial Because:  promotes-healthy skin and hair, prostate health, good vision, fast immune response, better bladder function.
may help with-acne, hormone regulation, depression, parasites, kidney stones, inflammation, high cholesterol.
How to use: sprinkle on salads, toss in pasta, as a snack on their own, in oatmeal, as part of trail mix.
Where to get: Most grocery stores sell these.  They are also known as Pepitas.  Aim for raw green seeds, but the dry roasted one's are a great alternative to salty mixed nuts.I like to buy them in bulk at the health food store.

*The above is all information that I have researched but I am not claiming that is any way a complete treatment or cure. Home Harvests believes the only way to keep your body healthy and disease free is through a well rounded, nutrient rich, plant based diet.  The above is only one small component of reaching that balance.These suggestions work for me and that is why I like to share the research I have done with you.

  1. I *love* pumpkin seeds. I love putting little bowls of seeds and nuts out to munch on when guests are visiting, or when I know I/we'd otherwise just be scavenging around for anything... I try to keep a bunch of nuts/seeds/dried fruit on hand for just these occasions... good one!
