2. Sunflower Seeds
Sunflowers aren’t only beautiful to look at, but their seeds are super nutritious. Just a ¼ cup of sunflower seeds has about 128 mg of magnesium. They are also a great source of calcium, as well as polyunsaturated fats, which help to reduce bad cholesterol levels and can help you stay slim. There are so many wonderful ways that you can enjoy sunflower seeds and reap the health benefits that they offer; snack on them throughout the day or use them as a replacement for croutons on your favorite salad. You can also mix them into a wrap. Be forewarned, however, that you need to make sure you are choosing the right type of sunflower seeds. Many of the packaged varieties that are already roasted are packed with sodium. Instead, opt for raw sunflower seeds and do the roasting yourself.
