Is it ok to add many kinds of seeds to smoothies?

I am not sure, but I think I am making a mistake. When I make a smoothie I add almonds, nuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and chia seeds. Aren't those too many? I also add spinach. Maybe there are too many seeds. I want to gain weight, but maybe I should add just 2 kinds of seeds. But I don't add them in a big quantity. I add just small quantities. Do I make a mistake?

I am not sure, you could maybe call someone at a vitamin store. They often will give you advice.Also, I just read this and shared the link.... Any variation of nuts will be of great help when added to your weight gain smoothies. Per one half cup of sliced almonds, you can add around 250+ calories. Aside from being calorie-dense, these additions are nutrient-dense as well. Walnuts for example, provide a good portion of healthy fats and protein. You can get a good boost of both protein and healthy carbohydrates to provide yourself and your muscles with much-needed nourishment.
Making your own smoothies can be a tasty & faster way to supplement extra calories for weight gain. Here are 10 good foods to add to weight gain smoothies:

I like Carol's idea to call a vitamin store, Or i know my neighborhood has a health food store and they usually really know about this. I don't eat seeds like that so have no idea.

I want to gain weight, so I want to try anything. But they are hard to digest.

I don’t think so. I prefer ground chia seeds if I put them in a smoothie, otherwise they get stuck in the teeth!

Yes, chia seeds can get stuck. I blend them because they are hard to swallow for me.

I wouldn’t add quite so many varieties into one.

@Mavic123456 But my digestive system dislikes so many seeds. When they are too many they are hard to digest.
