Not everyone is a nut lover. Instead, some people choose to consume seeds rather than nuts. There are health benefits to being a seed lover as well as a nut lover. Because so many people love to consume seeds, Fastachi offers several seeds for our discerning customers, which means that you have several options if you love adding seeds to your diet. Here is some information about the health benefits of consuming seeds and which seeds are likely to tempt your palate.

Are Seeds Healthy?

Adding seeds to your diet has health benefits. In fact, nuts and seeds are very similar in terms of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. Seeds are great sources of fiber. Many Americans don't eat enough fiber, which is a shame because fiber helps regulate your digestive system and helps you feel full. Seeds are also chock full of healthy fats and fatty acids, such as omega-3. All of the healthy fats are monosaturated, which means that these are the healthiest fats you can consume. These healthy fats and fatty acids help keep your blood vessels strong and healthy.

Seeds also have beneficial vitamins and minerals, such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, manganese, folate, copper, iron, zinc, protein, thiamine, selenium, and potassium. All of these vitamins and minerals are essential for good health. They help your eyes, skin, hair, and teeth; they help prevent illness, and they can even prevent certain birth defects in pregnant women.

What Kind of Seeds Can I Buy From Fastachi?

One of our favorite seeds we offer is squash seeds, which are high in vitamins A and C. We roast our squash seeds in the shell in small batches and then add some sea salt to complement its flavor. Corn is also a popular roasted treat, and it is rich in vitamin C as well as lutein and zeaxanthin, which are minerals essential for good eye health, especially as adults age. Fastachi roasts and salts the kernels, and you can either eat them by themselves, or you can add them to a nut mix, a salad, or even as a side dish for lunch or dinner. We also offer wasabi peas, which are green peas we roast and salt, and then roll in wasabi mustard for a zingy, spicy taste you'll love.
