- Spikey is always full of energy and especially so this evening as he has been tearing around the living room playing with his toys before entertaining himself by seeing if he can squeeze himself into his toybox….. He hasn’t even been eating any sesame seeds which are high in protein, a great form of rich in quality vitamins, and minerals and thus a great energy food. Sesame seeds are very good sources of B-complex vitamins such as niacin, folic acid, thiamin (vitamin B1), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), and riboflavin. They are also rich sources of minerals – calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and copper are especially concentrated in sesame seeds.
One of my favourite sesame seed recipes is the Spicy Sesame Dip from this website – http://www.foodstolove.co.uk/
