Simplifying the complex world of functional nutrition

I bought some poppyseeds at Sprouts a few weeks ago and wasn’t really sure what I got them for, but I knew I wanted to make something new and exciting with them! I feel like everyone has certain foods they know of but just don’t really cook with, and poppyseeds are definitely one of those ingredients for me.

Poppyseeds are just weird, right? They’re little black seeds that have essentially no flavor (in my opinion) and they’re mixed with lemon in almost every recipe you’ll find. Think about it though, seriously.. have you ever heard of poppyseed anything that doesn’t have lemon in it?

When I made this recipe for you guys and I was seriously shocked at how amazing it tasted! It reminds me of a pound cake almost… Super delicious, light, sweet, and tastes like the last little bit of summertime. Hope you enjoy this loaf as much as I do!
