I got to Googling, and there it was: sunflower seed butter! It was pricey at $6 for a jar about the size of a jar of peanut butter but I was so curious that I bought it anyway. Visions of my children happily eating something new (and finally be able to make pb&j...or sb&j, rather....sandwiches again was a blessed relief).
The verdict: I love it! My older son loves it. And thinks its hilarious for some reason. The baby is skeptical and hasn't tried it yet. But, sunbutter and banana sandwiches have become my go-to pre-Insanity workout snack.
Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant with anti-inflammatory effects that result in the reduction of symptoms in asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. They are also rich in magnesium and selenium.
