Sesame seeds are high in calcium and contain valuable enzymes. The black sesame seeds are higher in nutrients than the brown, but either color is a good choice.

Fenugreek does wonders for the sick and /or debilitated. It is a great preventive measure against illness in babies, children, and adults. Stir 1 to 2 tablespoons of ground fenugreek seeds in 1 cup of water and soak overnight. Sprouted seeds may be consumed.
