A better Snack
People eat sunflower seeds in many different ways, for many different reasons. Some eat them by the hand and mouthful (sometimes challenging given our size), and some eat them one by one. Some people eat seeds to manage stress, to quit smoking, or to lose weight or stay awake. And some eat them just because they’re delicious and nutritious. In case you’re wondering, sunflower seeds are right up there with other healthy seeds like flax, chia, hemp, sesame, and pumpkin as a good source of healthy fats, plant-based protein, fiber, and antioxidant polyphenols. Sunflower seeds are a complete protein, containing 9 of the essential amino acids. And, like other nuts and seeds, sunflower seeds are also a popular, high-fat, low carb snack that can make an excellent addition to your keto and paleo diets.
