I discovered Weeds & Seeds at the Vancouver Wellness Show, a showcase of products meant to promote health and wellness. I do mean products that promote health/wellness, though not necessarily actually produce it.

Weeds & Seeds survival cereal is a nutritional rock star, with many ingredients locally and ethically harvested. Using over 95% organic ingredients, it is raw, vegan, high in dietary fibre, 0% sugar per serving and gluten, lactose and GMO free – just to name a few of its nutritional benefits!
Not just any weeds.
But we feel it's the weeds in Weeds & Seeds that sets us apart from similar products out there. Powerhouses like dandelion and plantain leaf are chalked full of antioxidants and immune boosting vitamins A and C. Both are said to be powerful healers, used to purify the blood, address digestion-related problems, and prevent piles and gallstones, among other maladies. Traditional herbal medicine practices use dandelion for their diuretic effect used to rid the body of excess fluid, which can lead to lowered blood pressure.
Versatility is another quality this product boasts. Just add two tablespoons to granola, yogurt, milks, smoothies, oatmeal, salads or baking, and you’re well on your way to a healthy gut and meeting your daily nutritional requirements!
