A Seedy Affair: Five Seeds You Should Add To Your Diet

We all live for a seedy affair and I’m not just talking about of the scandalous variety. I am talking about the plant-based all-natural affair. The one that sheds off the facial years and sheds off the waistline. Seeds are widely known to be great sources of nutrients, and I have narrowed them all to these five must haves.

Flax
