Herbs and Seeds

We are better at knowing and using herbs and seeds. We are past the dill, mint, thyme and sunflower seeds is all we know stage. We grow fresh herbs and we are more likely to be using seeds on our cereals, in our slices and even in cakes. Seed bread just walks out of the shops here. Everyone raves about it. We don’t always know what the seeds and herbs are for and how they might help specific conditions. It doesn’t matter how many times magazines offer us helpful articles on herbs and seeds, complete with pictures, we just forget, but I do think that is why we are more aware of them and use them more frequently. This site by the National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine has a very good section on herbs and spices so that if you bookmark it, you can always quickly look up the nutritional information about a particular herb or spice. Take a look around the site too, because it is  very helpful and informative.
