This stadium favorite is a home run for nutritional benefits. Small but mighty, sunflower seeds are an excellent source of
protein, iron, folate, zinc, dietary fiber, and vitamin E. In fact, sunflower seeds are the best whole-food source of vitamin
E, a nutrient that may slow the effects of aging, boosts the immune system, and prevents cardiovascular disease. They are
also packed with four times more antioxidants than blueberries, walnuts, and peanuts, boosting the immune system and lowering
blood pressure and bad cholesterol.
How to eat: Try them in salads, stir-frys, spreads, or side dishes for an extra nutty crunch, or add them to breads and muffins to boost the nutrient profile.
