Hi I just recently started watching your videos and I’m loving your recipes. I have a question though on the seeds and nuts do you have to roast them first to get rid of phytic acid or would they lose their nutritional value? Thanks and kind regards

PUL Team - Oct. 14, 2022, 7:23 a.m.

Hey Nawal, you don't always have to roast nuts and seeds, both make for incredibly wholesome choices! Roasting nuts and seeds can impact some of their nutrients. For example, some heat-unstable nutrients such as B vitamins and carotenoids are lower in roasted nuts and seeds than in raw counterparts. Heat-stable nutrients, such as fibre, protein, and minerals tend to be similar. Some other nutrients, such as phenols, flavonoids, and antioxidant properties may improve after roasting 🙂

I'm curious: your ingredient list includes ground flax seed. In the photo you show what looks to me like unground/whole flax seeds. Is that accurate? I usually grind my flax seeds, but they become more like a powder.

PUL Team - Oct. 6, 2022, 4:46 p.m.

Hey there, Nancy, great eye! We recently upgraded this recipe and switched the whole flaxseeds to ground flaxseeds to promote better omega-3 fat absorption 🤓 Feel free to use either though.


Mary - Sept. 26, 2022, 11:18 p.m.

I looooooove this seed mix!!!! I’m glad it gives you an option to do a big batch of it. Did extra for my mother & siblings. The taste is awesome 👏 thank you!

PUL Team - Sept. 28, 2022, 8:02 p.m.

So thrilled it's being enjoyed, Mary, and how kind of you to make it for them!


Yasmine - Aug. 28, 2022, 8:06 a.m.

Such a brilliant and simple idea!

One question though: in general, do chia seeds have to be soaked or ground to be able to take fully advantage of their nutritional value?

Thank you

PUL Team - Aug. 28, 2022, 8:33 p.m.

Hey there, Yasmine, not a silly question at all! It does have some benefits, although, unsoaked and whole chia seeds still make for a wholesome choice 🙂

Ground chia seeds instead of whole seeds allows for better absorption of omega-3 fats. Soaking also has several benefits as we talk more about in our soaking article here in case you haven't already seen it: pickuplimes.com/article/benef…. If you prefer to soak this mixture, it would likely work better closer to serving as the chia seeds will expand which may be undesirable.


Hina - June 9, 2022, 5:29 a.m.

Would love to try! Do these need any cooking or pre-soaking? I soak my chia seeds before eating. do these need that?

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 6:42 p.m.

Hey there, Hina! The nuts can be pre-roasted if desired. If you prefer to soak the mixture, it would likely work better closer to serving as the chia seeds will expand which may be undesirable. We typically don't soak nuts or seeds if we're roasting or baking them. For example, if we're adding this mix to granola. We mainly only soak nuts or seeds if we're snacking on them as-is, or if we're using them in dressings or sauces, although we don't necessarily do this all the time. Nuts and seeds are incredibly wholesome whether or not they’ve been cooked or soaked, so we’d suggest doing whatever works best for your schedule and lifestyle. You can also learn more about soaking in our article here if you're interested and haven't already seen it yet: pickuplimes.com/article/benef… 🙂

Love this mix,
Make it every fortnight, add some other nuts like Brazil for selenium/thyroid health.
So nice over yogurt !

PUL Team - June 9, 2022, 6:09 p.m.

Thank you for sharing your experience with it, Su!


Julie - May 20, 2022, 8:02 a.m.

Amazing! I have all these ingredients sitting around and never thought to just combine all of them as a sort of topping. It's delicious, nutritious, and hearty. Love it! I think this will become a staple in our fridge.


Marenda - April 27, 2022, 7:53 a.m.

I’ve noticed none of the vegan YouTube videos watch use pistachios, almonds and cashews. Well they use cashews to make sauce but not seed mixtures. Are these nuts not as good for you? I know pistachios are expensive. I see a lot of pumpkin seeds sunflower seeds and flax, chia and hemp. I was just wondering

PUL Team - April 27, 2022, 5:50 p.m.

Hey Marenda, nuts and seeds including pistachios are a delicious source of many nutrients! They're indeed more expensive and a bit less accessible for us personally. We'll note down a request for content with pistachios as an idea for future content though 😃


Iman - April 2, 2022, 10:54 a.m.

I love this mix. It's the second time that I'm making it. I just love sprinkle it on my oatmeal or sometimes on a salad or basically anything.

PUL Team - April 3, 2022, 8:41 p.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed, Iman, thank you!


Cornelia Moyo - April 1, 2022, 12:33 p.m.

Great work


Shalini - March 27, 2022, 8:56 p.m.

Glad! I landed on rich nutrition based video & website, detailing amazing recipes.
I had begun consuming a mix of below ingredients: chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, wet dates, cashews.

Added chia seeds & helm seeds to the mixture😊

Thanks for the great recipe

PUL Team - March 27, 2022, 10 p.m.

Aw thanks a bunch, Shalini, it means so much to hear 😃


Lynsey - March 25, 2022, 12:04 p.m.

Thank you for this mix, I made it this morning after bookmarking it weeks ago. Really good but the hemp seeds were quite hard, I wonder if I've got the right ones now.

PUL Team - March 26, 2022, 7:21 p.m.

Hey Lynsey! Hemp seeds are on the harder side. Opting for hulled hemp seeds, such as hemp hearts, is one option that is softer since the outer shell is removed. This option is lower in some nutrients though, such as fibre 😊


Johanna - March 24, 2022, 9:14 a.m.

Hey there, this sounds nice. Can you taost this mix, or is it better to leave it raw?

PUL Team - March 24, 2022, 3:23 p.m.

Hey Johanna, you can toast it if desired. We'd recommend keeping a close eye on the mix to make sure it doesn't burn if so 😊


Carol - March 18, 2022, 11:27 p.m.

Made this into my jar today! Looking forward to having this tonight in my salad and in my toasted Ezekiel bread with avacodo! I love the mixture, so glad I had everything in my pantry😊

PUL Team - March 19, 2022, 12:11 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely! We hope you enjoy it, Carol 🙂
