My friend Maryam is always pouring a small dish of sunflower seeds and chomping on them. I thought it was like a nervous habit, like when people eat the shelled ones? Turns out, she knew something I didn’t, or maybe she didn’t, doesn’t matter, she was doing something healthy and I’m all about that.
Recently I was doing some research on whole foods for helping with a hypo-thyroid issue. Turns out, Sunflower seeds are full of what you need if you suffer from hypothyroidism. In fact, they are so full of necessary vitamins and minerals, (Vitamin E, B1, Manganese, Copper, Tryptophan, Magnesium, Selenium, Vitamin B6, Phosphorus and Folate) everyone should add them to their diets. Packed with all these nutrients, they even lower LDL cholesterol.
Sprinkle them on salads. Keep a baggy in your purse for an emergency snack. Grind them up in your morning smoothie. Anyway you eat them, they are a really good addition to your new healthy you! So eat some!
