Snack Suggestion ...


1 ounce of dried sunflower seeds has:
Carbs: 2.3
Fat: 14.1
Calories: 162.0
Cholesterol: 0.0
Sodium: 1.0
Protein: 6.5
Best to get unsalted because we REALLY don't need the salt. Salt makes us retain water and don't you want to see the numbers on the scale go down? Naturally?
I also get them raw. Great source of protein, low sodium and carbs, and all around tasty protein treat.
And believe me, you really should start your day with a bang ... protein. Even if it's just a small dixie cup (that's what we use) of seeds, it's necessary for you to burn fat and NOT muscles!

Thanks for the reminder. I used to eat sunflower seeds and I haven't been lately. I find just a small amount really satisfies hungry cravings too...gotta love those healthy fats. It also helps process your fat soluable vitamins. Win-Win.

I love sunflower seeds! I used to eat bags of them back in that other life when I had no self-control LOL. I think I'll get myself a bag and add it to my lunch menu.
