Between watching Dr. Oz and listening to John Tesh and doing some reading… I’ve started adding spices to my unsalted sunflowers these days. This is being done to help stop inflammation, lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure, etc.
Spices in the witch doctor’s cabinet at this time:
Tumeric, Curry, Garlic Powder, Cinnamon, and Ginger. Out of those I think tumeric is the ‘wonder drug’ that does the best, so I add it to the stuff most often, usually with one or two of the others.
I also use flax seed in cereal in the mornings somedays, but not every day. Here’s a little tip I bet you didn’t know… Both sunflower seeds and flax seeds should be refrigerated to keep them good for longer periods of time. Weird, I know, especially since the Hy-Vee here in town stores there unsalted sunflower seeds in tubes that are not in the refrigerator section. I guess maybe the tubes might be air tight, so that might be part of the reason for that?…
