This fresh ground flax and sunflower seed fruit salad is simple to prepare, it’s sweet with a hint salt and totally summery. It makes a great snack pre-workout and its a good way to get in those Omega 3’s. Bonus: it takes 10 minutes at the most to prepare.
Makes: 1-2 servings
Preparation Time: 10mins
Coffee Grinder (optional)
Try to buy everything organic. Here’s why.
2 Tbsp flax seed, brown and or golden (if you do not have a coffee grinder, purchase pre-ground flax seed and be sure to store in the fridge)
1 organic banana
5-6 organic strawberries
1/4 cup hulled sunflower seeds, soaked and dehydrated (you can soak and then toast your seeds at low temps in the oven, or bypass those steps altogether, if you like)
Pinch of fine ground pink Himalayan or Celtic sea salt
Let’s Get Started:
Slice your banana and chop your strawberries and place in a bowl.
Flax seeds pack a fantastic nutritional punch, and freshly ground flax seeds are optimal for assimilation (if that almost indestructible hull are not broken, they will pass right on through your system undigested). They are fragile little seeds, and the essential oils in them can go rancid easily, so make sure you store them in the refrigerator or freezer—whole or ground.
Grind seeds in a coffee grinder until pretty broken apart, but not sticking together. Mix with your sea salt.
Sprinkle your freshly ground seed and salt mixture over your fruit.
Toss with sunflower seeds and enjoy! Store any leftovers in an airtight glass jar in the refrigerator.umUniverse
