I was recently sent some sample of the new Munchy Seeds Honey Seeds to try out. I didn't really mind. I love seeds and nuts. They're an excellent source of fibre, minerals, vitamins and oils. When I make my granola I always include a lot of seeds and nuts. I'm really, really fond of them. They also help to keep you feeling full for longer as they are slow releasers of energy.
Munchy Seeds come in seven scrummy varieties. Some are savoury, some are sweet and others are hot. The Honey Seeds are sweet. One packet I ate out of hand . . . as a mid morning snack. They were delicious. Crunchy and sweet, without being over the top, with a lovely mild honey flavour.
The other pack? Well, it was the perfect size for sprinkling on my morning tub of low fat yogurt.
It was very, very good. And healthy too.
Honey Seeds . . . Honey roasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds, perfect for healthy snacking in the home, office, school or for a moreish nutritious sprinkle on ice-cream. (or Yogurt!)
This is a new Munchy product to created to help to celebrate the Queen's 60th Jubilee Year and the campaign to bring back the bee. A delicious blend of sunflower and pumpkin seeds delicately roasted and coated in a crispy, honey coating.
Why it's good for you...
Sunflower seeds are low in saturated fat, and contain a healthy combination of Omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids, crucial to the diet as the body cannot produce them itself – that’s why they’re called ‘essential’. These ‘good fats’ are vital for cell maintenance and helping to regulate blood clotting, blood pressure, immune function and reproduction – all the birds and the bees stuff!
Every little pumpkin seed is packed with the mineral zinc, making this our IMMUNE-BOOSTING mix. Zinc is important for keeping our immune systems strong, and without good immunity, we’re vulnerable to every cough and sniffle doing the rounds. Pumpkin seeds are also good for protein and iron, both involved in keeping your energy levels up, so you’ll feel fit, healthy and ready to take on the world. If your iron stores are low, you could eventually suffer from anaemia, which leaves you feeling weak, tired and lethargic – not the way we want you to be.
But that’s not all – this mix (and all of their nibbles, in fact) is a great source of vitamin E, whose antioxidant effect helps protect your body’s cells from damage, reducing your risk of all sorts of chronic diseases, from heart disease and cancer to arthritis. See their Health Benefits page for more details.
