Nuts and seeds are full of nutrients & a great addition to meals. Here are recipes for a week of meals featuring nuts and seeds for breakfast, lunch & dinner.
Time for another weekly meal plan. This week I chose one of my favorite groups of ingredients- nuts & seeds. I love pretty much any nut or seed you throw my way and I was able to find lots of creative ways to use things like almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds!
