Wow never knew you could eat them... I'm going to share this with my daughter.

Wow I didn't know those looked like that. Pretty and unique looking.

In Russia, lotus flowers are also beautiful, but not edible: (

Never tasted these, they look very alien like when they are producing the seeds. The flower looks beautiful, what a strange plant.

Elfkitchen, I did not know you can eat lotus seeds. Interesting! I will read more about this.

Those look so interesting!

seed purity and many benefits especially for linfa, kidney and strengthen the heart muscle "lottus"

@elfkitchen Xie Xie for sharing some healthy information! I don't know much about lotus seeds but look forward to reading up more about them. Namaste :)

This is amazing. I have seen this before. Thanks for sharing.

This just gave me trypophobia!

Thanks for sharing another wonderful Blog @elfkitchen. I read about it on Google and I found it very useful:
''Lotus seeds are a rich source of phosphorus, protein, potassium and magnesium. They may also contain zinc and iron. The seeds contain low levels of sugar, sodium, cholesterol and saturated fat. One ounce of raw lotus seeds contains approximately 94.3 calories"
How is the taste of lotus seeds...? Also please share some post in which you mention your weekly food Plan for kids and also for elders. I'm fond of your blogs now onward. Thanks for having with us on this wonderful Community!!

Look natural & healthy. Thank you for your post.


Oh no. Some of these photos really trigger my trypophobia! I don't feel well now 😣

Wait a second! I really thought lotus has to be grown in the pond or grow in water. This is kinda nice and new to find out it can be grown on dry land; muddy? Am I incorrect on this assumption?!

BTW, very vivid beautiful photos my dear. Aloha!

This is the first time I've seen and known that a lotus has a seed on it. Thanks for the post ! It's great!
