A gift from sunflowers. The bright cheerful yellow petals of the sunflower surround a seed-studded center. “Sunflower seeds” are actually the greyish-green sunflower kernel or heart, which is what remains after the seeds have been dehulled. For more than 5,000 years, Native Americans used the seeds as food and source of oil. Just a handful of these will assuage your hunger and supply your body with significant amounts of Vitamin E, magnesium, and selenium. Add them to your favorite salads, scrambled eggs, and cereals. With overwhelming spikes in peanut allergies, sunflower seeds are a godsend as they make an awesome substitute for peanuts in your favorite recipes.
