In a word, seeds are powerhouses. (Remember that they are the source of entire plants, even trees in some cases.) That’s a lot of energy in a little seed. They are good sources of protein and calcium, but because of their high oil content, seeds perish relatively quickly and keep best refrigerated. The most popular seeds in natural foods cooking include pumpkin seeds (pepitas), poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds.
