I was in the store and picked up a package of sunflower kernels and thought they would be a good source of fat, carbs, and protein. Here are the nutritional facts:

Anyone think this would make a good snack to take a break from eating peanuts?

All in all, good snack! Just don't go crazy, they're pretty calorific (unless you're bulking obviously!)

Thanks I will have to look into that I just figured I would try something new to switch things up a bit so I don't get burnt out on peanuts.

i mainly eat almonds (been knocking out this 2.5lb tub from costco), sunflower seeds, cashews are all in my regiment. Mainly roasted almonds. I could literally live off just these and cashews.

Sunflower seeds are great because they're so inexpensive for what you get. Next time you should go for the unsalted ones.
