How do birds manage to fly so high? How do they manage to fly across continents, in a matter of days? I put it down to seed power. Smart animals from parrots to people eat seeds. Every time I reach for my seed jar in my fridge, I smile as I remember big seedeaters, like the character Fox Mulder from the X-Files series and Ace Ventura Pet Detective. Seeds are rich in essential fats, minerals, vitamin E and protein. All you need is a tablespoon a day for optimum health. I encourage all the athletes I work with to follow the tips I will share with you today. Here is my magic formula:

My Daily Seed Jar

What you will need

500g of flax seeds (also called linseeds)
150g of pumpkin seeds
150g of sesame seeds
150g of sunflower seeds
A mixing bowl
A glass jar with a tight seal

1. In your mixing bowl, mix the flax seeds, which are rich in omega 3 with the pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds, which are rich in omega 6.

2. Pour the seed mix into the glass jar.

3. Keep the jar tightly sealed in your fridge until you use it.

4. Put a tablespoon in your coffee grinder, grind them up and add them to a soup, salad or cereal.

Give it a try and tell me what you think.
