Sunflowers come in all colors and sizes. But not all seeds are fit for human consumption.
This was the first year I attempted to grow sunflowers at the new house. I never grew these giants with food for us. Sunflower seeds were always grown for the birds. I’m happy to share those edible sunflowers with that honey bee pictured above and even a few birds.
When it comes to nutrition, sunflower seeds are high in Vitamin E, copper, manganese, selenium, phosphorus, magnesium, Vitamin B6, folate, Vitamin B3, fiber.
Eat the seeds alone or add them to your favorite dishes.
Enjoy sunflower seeds any way you can. These tiny powerhouses are not only good but so good for you!
