Because of our love for this sweet treat, Sesame Brittle has a special place in our hearts, just as other delicious snacks have done over the years. But wait, where did Sesame Brittle even come from?

Origin And History of Sesame Brittle In Nigeria

  We’re still arguing if Sesame Brittle originated from Nigeria or not, even though by love at first taste, we can’t just get enough of it. Sesame seeds probably came from East Africa, and the ancient Egyptians used them as a food source. Today, we still think sesame to have mystical properties, like in the popular saying “Open Sesame!” from “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves” Sesame brittle is a special snack that some people don’t normally associate with Nigeria. If someone stops you on the road and tells you that one of the most popular Nigerian snacks is sesame brittle, the way you would give them an inquisitive stare ehnn.. However, sesame brittle is actually a relatively traditional snack in Nigeria.

Where is sesame found in Nigeria?

In Nigeria, 26 of the 36 states grow sesame, the largest producers being Jigawa and Benue. Marketed in a variety of forms, from seeds to oil, Nigeria produces a significant amount of sesame each year.

What is Sesame Brittle Called In Nigeria?

Does the candy we call “Sesame Brittle” in Nigeria have another name in Nigerian language? Well, yes. Different tribes have special names they call this snack, but let’s look at what the major three tribes in Nigeria call Sesame Brittle. The botanical name for Sesame is Benniseed: but in Nigeria, Sesame Brittle is often called ‘Ridi’ in Hausa, ‘Ekuku’ in Igbo, and ‘Isasa’ in Yoruba. Sometimes we always wonder how people describe Sesame Brittle to someone who has never seen one before. It’s not quite chocolate. It’s not quite biscuit. It’s not even car oil (even though it’s crispy and looks like it has been broiled). Well, maybe we should first ask people their tribes first, and call it in their language. Abi?  

What Does Sesame Brittle Taste Like?

When you eat Sesame Brittle, it’s like having a crunchy candy but only that this candy is healthy and good for your health. It’s sweet and crunchy.

Health Benefits of Sesame Brittle?

As a rule of thumb, sesame brittle is eaten as a dessert or snack. The taste is interesting enough that many people keep eating long after they’re full. I think this makes sesame brittle dangerous: once you’ve started eating it, it’s hard to stop. So, you ask; what does Sesame brittle do to your body when you eat it? According to Healthline, sesame seeds have a big nutritional benefit when you eat enough of them, about a handful a day. Here are the major benefits of eating Sesame Brittle:
  • Helps Lower Blood Pressure: Sesame seeds can help you get more of three kinds of fat in your diet. These fats will help you get more of “good” cholesterol (HDL) and less of “bad” cholesterol (LDL).

You should eat them instead of other junk snacks if you’re watching your blood pressure.
  • Helps you maintain regular bowel movements: Sesame Brittles help you poop better. They have fiber in them, which pulls water into your poop, and helps it pass more easily. Sesame seeds also have a lot of healthy ingredients, so a person can eat a lot of them without getting too many calories. Fiber also helps to digest your food and gives you more energy and makes you feel full.
  • Excellent Source of Plant Protein: Sesame Brittles are good for you. They have high plant protein and other things that make your body strong and healthy which keeps you from getting hungry quickly, and makes it easier to lose weight and keep your sugar level under control.
  • Supports Your Immune System: Sesame Brittles have important nutrients like zinc and vitamins that help your body fight off bad germs and infections. These nutrients help your immune system work properly, and zinc helps the immune system work even better. If you don’t have enough zinc then your body can’t make white blood cells to fight germs and diseases.
  • Supports Healthy Bones: A pack of Sesame Brittles provides about 30% of daily calcium requirements. Who knew? It’s time to stop hammering your bones with calcium supplements and start eating more Sesame Brittles.

How Is Sesame Brittle Prepared?

How does someone go about preparing traditional Nigerian sesame brittle? There are many aspects of preparing this treat though. One, the sesame seed mix must be cooked thoroughly. Two, the syrup must be thickened appropriately to allow for easy manipulation once the candy is molded. Three, frying or dehydrating the brittle gives it that desired texture and taste. Due to health concerns, we don’t really encourage frying with anyhow oil. There are still healthier ways you can make the Sesame stick together without frying, like using a dehydrator. But here are mostly the ingredients you will need:

Ingredients of Sesame Seed Brittle

  • 2 teaspoon dates extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • salt (as required)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • water

How to make the Sesame Brittles

First Step: Place the sesame seeds in a bowl and wash them under warm water. After they’ve soaked for a few seconds, rub them gently between your hands like you’re washing off all their sins.   Step 2: Dry the sesame seeds in an oven set on low heat for 15 minutes. For those who don’t have a food dehydrator, brush a baking sheet with oil then preheat the oven to 150 degrees F. Spread the sesame seeds on the sheet and cook for 15 minutes. Third Step: Heat the honey and dates extract in a pot and start adding the sesame seeds while constantly stirring it for 5 to 10 minutes. Once the mixture has completely melted, you can add baking soda to it, if you prefer, to make it stick more. Finally: Place your sesame candy on a wire rack or baking sheet and allow it to dry. Once the candy has cooled, you can eat it. And a note to mindful eaters though: Sesame Brittle is a great way to substitute your current junk snack of choice for a healthier one without noticing the difference.

How do I store Sesame Brittles and how long does it last?

Once you are done making Sesame brittle, the next issue is how to store it properly for long. Since Sesame brittle is just candy, people forget it needs to be stored properly. Not unlike other things in life, you can’t just leave it on the coffee table and expect for it to last forever. It is important to store your Sesame brittle in an airtight container. This will protect it from moisture, which may make it sticky. The obvious thing is- Store your Sesame Brittle in a cool and dry place. The not so obvious- Don’t store it in a really humid environment, such as the bathroom or kitchen. You get?

What can I eat with Sesame Brittles?

How To Develop New Healthy Habits

Building New Healthy Habits

You know you need to create a new healthy habit, but you aren’t sure it can happen. It’s hard to change, right? It gets harder the older we get too, right? Maybe you’ve already tried to eat better, get more exercise or sleep, quit smoking, or reduce stress. It’s not easy. But what if we told you it doesn’t have to be as hard as you think? Instead of changing overnight, you can learn to break it up into chunks and take baby steps toward your new goal. Well, today is all about encouraging you to look at creating a new healthy habit differently. Our mission is to make it easier for you to develop a new healthy habit ASAP. Let’s get started!

What is a habit?

It’s something you repeat, often without even knowing it. Some habits are good, some are bad. Most people want to learn at least one good habit or give up a bad one. 

Some Examples of Good Habits 

  • Eating Healthy: This includes fruits and snacks that add nutrients to your body and boosts your health or immune system. A common opposite of this is to eat junk or processed foods just because they are appealing.
  • Exercising: Flexing the muscles once in a while is fantastic for our body and makes our mind active to take on challenges for the day. This doesn’t even need you to go to the gym, because just taking a walk instead of driving from a nearby shop to another can be enough exercise already!
  • Sleeping/resting Enough: Ahh! If it’s Lagos and enjoying the recommended 8 hours of sleep, that’s almost impossible. But sometimes, we too can be hard on ourselves even without knowing. Especially when we intentionally avoid sleeping to continue late-night work or projects.
  • Maintaining relationships: Social connections help our brains stay healthy and happy! We can’t deny the fact we sometimes need people to share time with. Strengthen the relationship you already have and be open to making new friends. It’s healthy fun, anyway!
  • Learning New Skills: New skills help our brain stay healthy and sharp. Have you been interested in any course or handwork but feel lazy to start, remember the golden rule: give to your brain, what you want your brain to produce for you (hope you know the original golden rule ooh. Lol)
  • De-stress: When you’re stressing about things you can’t control or maybe someone wants to frustrate you in any way possible, just make a de-stress call right away! 
  • Relaxation and mindfulness: To be anxious can be very toxic, especially when it becomes part of you. Relax! Just calm down and be in the moment. Your mental health will appreciate you later for this, so much.


How To Avoid Bad Habits

List out what triggers your bad habit. If your goal is to eat less junk food, think about when and where you eat it. Is it when driving? Or you get it at the store nearby work? Probably just after dinner? Write them out and watch them closely to avoid the triggers as much as you can.
So if you buy chocolate from the store nearby at work, see if you can avoid driving past that route. If you smoke when you’re home alone, see if you can hang out more with friends or stroll to a nearby field to enjoy the feel of nature and open space. But don’t stop at that. Bad habits have a powerful pull once you decide to stop them. What should you do?
Replace the bad habit with a good one. So if you can’t avoid the chocolate store at work, order delicious healthy snacks instead from Green Baskit and place them at your desk. Whenever the cravings come for choco, switch to healthy snacking that’s even better delicious. If that’s not comfortable for you, chew sugarless gum instead. 


Developing Good Habits

It’s difficult to change everything at once, but it’s easier to set small goals and achieve them stage by stage. This will help you develop new good habits easier. For instance, it will be easier to do 7-10 pushups a day than to just run a marathon. It might take you several months to create a new habit.  Events trigger many habits. For example, washing your hands is triggered by going to the toilet. It will really help if you set triggers for your new habit as part of your existing routine.  Setting reminders can help you maintain good habits. Set automatic reminders on your computer and your phone. There are also apps available that help with goal setting and new habits. Try them. If you slip back into your old habits, don’t give up – this is common. Just remember why you wanted to make the change. This will help you pick up where you left off.  




The first step to building healthy habits is understanding what habits you want to learn. To do that, you need to define your goals for the new habit. Spend some time exploring what you want and need in your life at this very moment. Knowing this will allow you to move on to the next step — which is creating a plan. 


Once you’ve understood what you want to achieve with this new habit, you’ll need to create a specific plan backed up by realistic actions. Think about the small steps you can take to build a healthy habit and repeat them consistently to achieve your goals.  
  • Here are some examples of specific small actions you can add to your daily routine and eventually they will become habits:  
  1. Meditate in the morning’s rush – starting your day feeling rushed will throw off your mood and may shift your routine. Save some time in the morning for reflection, gratitude, prayer or meditation. This will help to set the tone for a successful day. 
  2. Enjoy a healthy breakfast – Because not everyone has the same appetite in the morning, so you can base your breakfast choices on your body’s needs and a breakfast rich in protein and healthy fats will provide energy and nourishment. 
  3. Drink a full glass of water before leaving the house. 
  4. Get some exercise during your lunch break.
  5. Have a healthy snack in the afternoon–this is usually the time of day when many people at work begin to “crash,” so being prepared with a healthy snack to boost energy levels will help to reduce cravings. 
  6. Prepare your own dinner – cooking meals at home more often will help to reduce calorie intake and give you control of how to fuel your body. 
  7. Choose a time for exercise and be ready – exercising at the same time every day will help make the action automatic. 
  8. Read before bed–this also can help your body unwind in the evening and support restful sleep at night. 


When you repeat the same healthy habits over time, your brain will naturally accept the behaviour and it becomes a habit you form in your subconscious. For example, if you drink a glass of water before eating breakfast every day, you’re likely going to be repeating this behaviour even without knowing. What this means is when you do this pre-breakfast activity consistently, your brain automatically prepares for it rather than relying on a decision to do it. 


We can expect setbacks any time we are trying to achieve a goal. There will be days when you don’t follow your plan perfectly or don’t just feel like it and then skip a process or two or maybe even give in to the junk food cravings, and so on.  But of course, the longer you stay away without performing the healthy habits, the harder it will be to come out of the setback. So, it’s okay to have days here and there that aren’t as planned but get back on track ASAP to keep the habit going.  


All work and no play makes healthy habits hard to keep. You want to work hard to stay healthy, no doubt. But you equally need some resting period too. Devote some time every week to relax and reflect. This could involve taking a yoga class, reading a book on the couch, or simply resting. Use it as a time to restore your body and mind for another week of wellness. 

Remember Your Tools

While you’re about to get started already on this journey, remember to use the tools we’ve shared to help yourself create a healthy habit:
  1. Decide on a goal.
  2. Plan when and where you will start
  3. Choose a simple action you can take every day.
  4. Congratulate yourself when you actually take the steps
  5. It gets easier with time, and within 10 weeks you should “be doing well” at it without even thinking.


Minor changes we make to our daily routine can make a big difference in how we feel about ourselves. Try the 5 steps above to integrate some healthy habits. You may notice that you’re not just developing good habits, but you’re also deleting bad ones. Stay consistent and before you know it, your days will be brighter and you will achieve your goals.   Good luck with the work!

Ensure your kids enjoy their most important meal of the day with these easy and delicious breakfast ideas that will save your time and workload during those rush-hour mornings.

Egg sauce is a very simple sauce that can be prepared within 20 minutes and all you just need is egg and tomatoes to make this delicious breakfast meal happen.

You can choose to offer nuts alone or with dried fruit or a mix of other fruits. Toasted Sesame Seeds and Nut Mx ( Sesame Granola)

Some Questions You Might Be Asking:

  • Is breakfast really that important?

You might have heard the old saying that, “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Although our busy minds may gloss over that fact, but doctors and educators still show that a nutritious breakfast is important, especially for your kids.
Breakfasts supplies the energy they need for a busy school day. A healthy breakfast provides your kids with crucial nutrients for proper physical and mental development. 
It can also be essential for maintaining a healthy body weight, which may protect children against future risks of obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Get it now? Don’t skip breakfast, Mom!
  • How do we get our kids to eat a healthy breakfast?

Now that we know a healthy breakfast really is important, here are 6 suggestions to help us make it happen for our kids:
  1. Include these 3 major components: grains, fruit, and dairy. Focus on whole grains and low- or non-fat milk or yoghurt for the dairy.
  2. Prepare breakfast early: Saving time always helps us in serving a nutritious meal (or any meal!). One of the best techniques is preparing breakfast food early. 
  3. Involve your children: Let your kids help plan the meals–getting them involved should increase their interest in eating healthy. If your kids are old enough to help with breakfast itself, put items on the lower shelves in the refrigerator or cupboard so that they can get things without your help.
  4. Focus on your kids’ preferences: While we may want to expand their options, busy mornings are typically not the best time for these battles! Work within healthy options. For example, if they don’t like cashew nuts, just allow them to choose their favourite type of nuts and make a smoothie the night before with fruits that they like.
It will end in happy healthy eating at last.   5. Experiment: Figure out what works best for each member of your family. But as we mentioned in Tip #4 – you probably have to wait to do this on weekends or holidays, when you have more time to work through any resistance.  6. Check the availability of school breakfasts:  More and more schools are now offering a healthy breakfast program. Check if your children’s schools are one of them. And if you sign your kids up for their school’s breakfast, make sure they’re not suddenly eating two breakfasts! LOL.

Helpful Tips To Help Your Kids Switch To Healthy Eating

  • Keep off the junk snacks 

Your kids won’t crave as much chocolate, candy bars or sweets if they don’t see them around anymore. Well, you can switch things a little like serving them desserts for special occasions rather than daily treats. 
Set a good example by eating healthy snacks yourself — your kids might copy that! 
  • Revisit breakfast

Serve your kids their breakfast foods as afternoon snacks. For instance, try offering them cornflakes mixed with fruit and nuts. Or better still, microwave oatmeal with low-fat milk and mix it with unsweetened yoghurt. This helps them switch faster to a healthier eating lifestyle. And they will thank you later, mom!
  • Assign a snacking zone

Only allow snacking in certain areas in the house, such as the kitchen for example. Avoid serving snacks when they’re watching cartoons, playing games with gadgets or minding something else. You’ll save your child countless calories from mindless munching. For snacks on the go, offer them dried banana or apple chips less messy snacks. Healthy Nigerian Snacks Kids Love
  • Schedule snacking time

This will help you make sure that their snacking doesn’t interfere with a healthy meal. Keep away the snacks within two hours after the meal, so that your child is hungry enough to eat with a balanced, nutritious snack planning.
Teaching your kids how to make healthy snack choices now will help them set the stage for a lifetime of healthy eating. Start today, mom!


Healthy snacks are nutrient-filled. When life allows for a little planning, grab the chance to teach your children a healthy eating lifestyle. They can have healthful snacks even at parties, on trips, and at the movies.
