Are nuts healthier than seeds?

Feeling left out you don’t get the health benefits of nuts?

According to the Aggregate Nutrient Density Index (ANDI), it turns out that seeds might just be the most nutrient-loaded option!  Thanks to the Nut-Tritious stand at Portland Farmer’s Market, I learned that sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and flax seeds all rate the highest on the ANDI scale, meaning that they have the highest concentration of nutritional value per volume.  This accounts for antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, and is why Nut-Tritious blends all of their butters with sunflower and flax seeds!  ..regardless of nut allergies.

Makes that homemade seed butter snack look oddly healthy for its deliciousness, no?  Feel not lack of flavor nor benefits, my friends.
