Peanut butter may be the most famous of all nut and seed butters, but that’s just because sunflower butter hasn’t yet had its moment to shine. And shine it does!
Not only does this smooth, seeded spread taste fantastic, it’s also loaded with vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant that helps to protect against free-radical damage to your cells. Free radicals are those nasty molecules that like to cure their single-electron loneliness by stealing partner electrons from your body, leaving your cells high and dry.
Dietary vitamin E, and other antioxidants found in foods like the almighty sunflower seed, help to boost immune function, prevent heart disease and cancer, and maintain a youthful glow. Sure PB’s got the backing of jam, but this health-promoting seed, when paired with a little cinnamon, vanilla, and honey will give this American classic a run for its money.
