Nutrient-dense, cardamon, sesame seeds & coconut bites

Practicing vegetarianism since forever, I am a big fan of sesame seeds and I am always looking to eat more every day and promote the same. Let's be honest, it's not easy to eat them plain. Although sesame seeds are safe to eat raw, toasting the seeds brings out and enhances the nutty flavor and crunchiness.

Sesame seeds have been used as a health food for chronic disease prevention in many Asian countries for thousands of years. These are also believed to prevent human aging-related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and arthritis.

These little seeds are full of vitamin E which is an antioxidant, minerals like copper, manganese, and calcium. Another major fact about sesame seeds is the 'Sesamin', a lignan in sesame seeds that has multiple functions from having an antihypertensive effect to lowering cholesterol, and anticancer properties. So now we have all the reasons why we should be eating these more! :)
