Sprouted Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds

I like to add some Sprouted Raw Organic Sunflower and Pumpkin Seeds to smoothies or salads.


  • Sprouting unlocks the nutrients inside the seeds to increase their bioavailability & digestibility.
  • Minimally processed and dried at low temperatures to ensure the seeds stay packed full of powerful nutrients and enzymes.
  • Just sprouted seeds and sea salt.
  • Made with no oils.

A great source of protein, magnesium, zinc, and iron.


Sunflower seeds are a great source of vitamin E, magnesium, selenium, B vitamins, copper, iron, fiber and plant protein. Sunflower seeds are high in mono-unsaturated fat and arginine.

Selenium has been shown to have anticancer, anti-inflammatory and antiallergenic properties.

Sprouted pumpkin seeds are full of properties that help promote health benefits like

  • ~skin health
  • ~anti-inflammatory
  • ~muscle recovery
  • ~digestion
  • ~bone health
  • ~immunity
  • ~energy levels

Serving Ideas

I add organic, raw, sprouted sunflower seeds to my green smoothie, or sprinkle on a salad, add to cauliflower rice.

Make a pesto with 1 cup sunflower seeds, 4 cups chopped basil, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 cloves garlic. Blend in a food processor.

Mix ground sunflower seeds and ground flaxseeds with raw cacao, coconut oil, a pinch of salt and stevia. Form into balls and freeze.
