Edible seeds for you and me

I think one of the main reasons folks have a problem with their weight is the American Diet that includes lots of meat and potatoes, not to mention junky fast foods.

The Super Seeds: Which is Healthier

Plus, the protein in hemp seeds contains all essential amino acids, something that’s unusual for plant foods.
