We eat them topped on our sushi rolls. Sometimes we even see them on the tops of our favorite baked breads. They’ve even been the perfect addition to some chewy candies. But sesame seeds, as small as they are, are packed with vitamins, minerals, nutrients as well as protein, which prove to be essential in rebuilding and repairing the human body. As we grow older in age, our bodies sustain more injurious hits, maybe you were a football player but no longer play or maybe you were overweight and loss the excess pounds. These are hits, and over a period of time, if we don’t provide our body with what it requires to repair the areas where we took these hits, they become breeding grounds for acid production and dis-ease.
But be not dismayed, Mother Earth always provides exactly what we need to live longer, more fulfilling and harmonious lives. All we have to do is seek and we shall find. Today’s precious discovery: Sesame Seeds.
