Sunflower seeds are a staple in the raw foods diet. They are one of the most widely used foods because they are inexpensive, readily available, nutritious, and easy to use. The unhulled sunflower seeds still have the shell, and they are used to grow baby green lettuce in your sprouter. The hulled seeds have the shell removed and are excellent ingredients to use in sauces, smoothies, pâtés, trail mix, and granola. They tend to have the most flavor if they are soaked for 6 to 8 hours.
