Sesame-flax butter can be made in seconds and delivers a punch from a nutritional standpoint. We've all heard how we should be eating more seeds. Sesame-flax butter is an easy way to include these beneficial seeds in your daily diet.

Nutritious sesame-flax seed butter is a healthful addition to the menu. Whole seeds may pass through the body undigested, so grinding them for consumption can help you to derive the most benefit when consuming seeds.

It's a good idea to visit a whole foods market and purchase your sesame seeds and flax seeds in bulk to save on costs and to have a good supply on hand. And it goes without saying that organic is best.

While sesame seeds and flax seeds may cost a bit, certainly, these food items are still far less expensive than meat. For those who are trying to curb meat consumption or for vegetarians or vegans, buying seeds is a wise investment.

When you consume seeds, you give your body beneficial fats & oils.

Make Sesame-Flax Butter in Small Amounts

Generally speaking, it is better to make your sesame-flax seed butter in smaller amounts in order to retain nutritional value.

A small grinder is suited for the task. Grinders are usually not that expensive.

Fill grinder 1/2-3/4 full and grind each batch of seeds, tapping and scraping contents into a bowl for mixing. (Follow filling/grinding instructions for your particular grinder.)

        Sesame seeds are a good source of calcium and flax seeds offer ligan phytonutrients + omega-3 fatty acids. Both sesame seeds and flax seeds are excellent seeds to consume.
