Until last year when I started walking, I was never a runner. Even as child before my chronic pain condition started and I was using my wheelchair, I was never a runner. I remember at a school sports day, I must have been about 8 years old and the other children were already at the finish line, as I approached the halfway mark. As the teacher blew her whistle and shouted our commands for cross-country, I would immediately feel a sense of dread. So how did I turn from a child that was unable to even run away from the word ‘running’ to an obstacle course runner?

We are naturally nutritious
OK, so we might be just a little biased, but there are SO many good reasons why you should be eating more seeds. Toasted seeds are naturally crammed with real goodies like protein, iron, fibre, vitamins and minerals which makes them a super nutritious food for a healthy diet. The rich nutrient content of seeds makes them particularly good for those leading an active lifestyle and are a super supplement if you are managing an allergy through the food you eat, or are living to a gluten free, or vegetarian diet; in-fact many of our seed blends are suitable for a vegan diet too. What are you waiting for?
