Poppy Seeds

Poppy seeds are a tasty little spice with health benefits that are often overlooked. They contain calcium and carbohydrates, which makes them a good source of energy, and linoleic acid (an essential fatty acid), which helps to prevent heart disease. Poppy seeds can be added to salad dressings, breads, cakes, or any other baked goods, to enhance their nutritional value. Next time you are baking consider mixing in some poppy seeds to spice it up!
