  2. Fights infections through antibody formation.
  3. supplies energy.
  4. Forms enzymes and hormones.

What is a good source of protein?  SESAME SEEDS!!  1/4 cup has 6.5 grams of protein.  That’s a great source.  Plus it is high in fiber and other essential nutrients.  So, what do you do with Sesame seeds besides make a bird house?

  • We usually add them to granola bars!
  • Add them to Breads or muffins
  • Sprinkle on salads
  • Puree for adding flavor
  • Add to stir-fry veggies
  • Blend with light mayonnaise for a sandwhich spread
  • Add to cookie doughs
  • Sprinkle over steamed broccoli

Can’t find them in the store?  They are with the spices.
