SMALL WON­DERS

ELLE (Australia) - - Beauty -

With an­tiox­i­dant, an­tivi­ral and can­cer­fight­ing prop­er­ties, sweet basil seeds are the no-brainer su­per­food you’ve prob­a­bly never heard of. Used in ayurvedic and Chi­nese medicine, these tiny pow­er­houses, packed with fi­bre, iron, vi­ta­min K and omega-3 fatty acids, can im­prove di­ges­tion, con­trol blood-su­gar lev­els and ap­petite, plus boost mem­ory and clear brain fog. Just soak them in wa­ter for a few min­utes (they’ll ex­pand and create a tapi­oca-like tex­ture) and add to fresh smooth­ies and drinks or mix with fruit and yo­ghurt for a su­per-easy, su­per-healthy sum­mer break­fast.
