Sunflower Seeds


Sunflower seeds are a great snack when you've got a food craving between meals but don't want to take in too many carbs. They're a nice, fatty seed and they're rich in vitamin E. 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds contains 12 g of fat and only 2 g of net carbs.

It doesn't matter if the seeds are salted or roasted, as they're keto-friendly either way. Avoid flavored varieties of sunflower seeds, such as BBQ or ranch, as these usually contain extra sugar.

Like any keto snack, pay careful attention to your portion size. A single 32 g package of sunflower seeds fits safely within your daily macros, but it can be easy to go overboard if you begin absent-mindedly snacking from a large bag.
