I love my nuts and seeds. As someone who relies on a plant-strong diet, they provide protein and nutrients required for strong running and quick recovery. I realize there are people (I see them on a regular basis) who have allergies and sensitivities to various nuts and seeds. We work around them or find alternatives.

But for those of you who can eat seeds without problem – here are the ones you want to be including in your diet regularly!

Click here for details on the nutritional breakdown of each of these top 5 seeds.

What seeds do you currently eat on a regular basis and how do you use them? Do you eat ones I haven’t mentioned here? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Happy running 🙂

  2. My Husband + I have incorporated Chia seeds, pumpkin seeds + sunflower seeds since your nutritional talk @ pen runners in wr! Both of us are finding we are recovering faster from our training + have more energy 🙂 .I am basically a vegetarian + am excited to try Hemp hearts+seeds to have another source of protein! I find that whey protein just leaves me bloated+sluggish! Thanks for all your tips! I’m looking forward to my new protein source! Cheers Jenn

      Awesome Jenn, that’s so great to hear! Yay, another plant-strong runner 🙂
      I actually began incorporating hemp in place of whey in my shakes very shortly after giving that talk… My new mix is: coconut water, banana, 1 Tbsp chia, 2 Tbsp hemp, 1 Tbsp almond butter or soaked almonds, greens powder or fresh greens, blueberries and strawberries. I’ll be posting the recipe soon!

  3. Another wonderful video Sarah! I eat pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds in salads and with walnuts and almonds in my own trail mix recipe. Love chia, salba and flax in my smoothies too!
