Wheat bread with sunflower seeds


These days everyone tries to add healthy foods to their menus. In winter time I try to incorporate foods that are rich in vitamins to avoid getting the flu and in summer time I add fresh berries that are rich in anti-oxidants. But something like sunflower seeds can be used year round in breakfasts like a honey granola or this delicious wheat bread.

Sunflower seeds hold multiple health benefits including the following:

  • They ease every condition that’s inflammatory in nature, such as joint pain and asthma.
  • The magnesium in sunflower seeds is reputed for soothing the nerves, thus easing away stress, migraines and helping you relax.
  • They control cell damage, thus playing a role in preventing cancer.
  • They bring a glow to your skin.
