-1/4 cup raw walnuts
-1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
-2 tablespoons raw hemp seeds
Pinch of salt and black pepper
-1/2 tsp Italian seasoning (optional)
2/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes
Start by toasting your walnuts and sunflower seeds on the stove for 3-5 min or until lightly golden brown. Once your nuts/seeds have cooled add to a small food processor and pulse until you have a fine crumble, similar to Parmesan cheese. Then stir in (or blend but be careful not to over blend into a dust) your nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, hemp seeds and herb seasoning. Store in an airtight container in the fridge up to 3-4 weeks, but I doubt it will last that long.
I love using sunflower seeds because they contain a large amount of selenium which helps to support my thyroid.
Walnuts are amazing for they provide omega 3 fatty acids which are so beneficial for our cognitive health, most well known for helping our brains!
Hemp seeds are a great source to get amino acids, these are important to help lower blood pressure, great for a healthy heart.
Lastly these are all a reliable source of healthy whole-food fats.
