When it comes to eating, I like clean and light food.
My body seems to reject heavy sauces, fried foods, and sautées, even if they are 100% organic.
I like simplicity in a meal and as a result, I tend to cook a decent amount for myself. Why?
Not only is cooking at home the most inexpensive way to eat organic but I can have exactly what I want.
Whenever I make quinoa, millet or a big salad, one of my favorite things to put on these dishes are black sesame seeds.
A rarity at organic restaurants, black sesame seeds can always be found in my kitchen for a few different reasons.
First, they are very rich in minerals such as magnesium, calcium, copper, and zinc. Getting these minerals into my diet is extremely important.
Second, I love the slightly nutty taste of black sesame seeds and they add tremendously to the flavor profile of whatever I am eating.
According to Chinese medicine, black sesame seeds are very good for the kidney and liver.
Some people also claim that black sesame seeds can reverse gray hair.
Whether black sesame seeds can actually reverse gray hair or not, I can’t say for sure. But I do have plenty of gray hair and I do eat a lot of organic black sesame seeds, so I’ll keep you posted on this one.
Frontier Natural Products Co-op, a brand that I like a lot, sells organic black sesame seeds and they can be purchased online.
