The calories listed for pumpkin seeds in shell and out of shell are the same. Does this mean the shell in indigestible and has no calories?

I LOVE seeds! There were times in my life when I could afford to get them - but they NEVER seem to go on sale - and they are WAY WAY too expensive for me now. When I can get some, somewhere, I take handsful - and eat a few at a time, so they last for a very long time. But that's probably too little to get the benefit. Does anyone know where or how to get them really, really cheap?

Just about any seed is a nutrition powerhouse, and many more are staples of our diets. Whole categories were left out of this article, not just chia seeds! ;-) How about beans, peas, lentils, corn, wheat, barley, almonds, pecans, filberts, peanuts, and many, many more. If you can put it in the ground and conditions are right, it will grow and make more of itself... it's a seed!

Watching Dr. Oz today, regards to foods for the brain....and this list here is missing CHIA seeds! Course I am not running out for them at this point. They are a source of omega fatty acids, and I am getting plenty!

I buy Hodgson's Mill ground flaxseed and store it in the freezer. My main use of it is in baking my "best of bran muffins" (from a diabetic snacks cookbook), which calls for 1/2 cup per recipe (24 muffins). I might try sprinkling it on cereal or into yogurt, though! Time to branch out.

Thank you so much for posting the information. I did not realize that Sunflower seeds were so high in fat. Hmmm , good thing I don't like them.

Loved the article. I eat flax seeds a few times a week, ground fresh and on my oatmeal. I like to keep sunflower seeds on hand. The article missed the joy of sunflower seeds on a salad. Here is a favorite of mine: romine lettuce, onion, fresh strawberries and sunflower seeds, topped with a balsamic vinegar or some type of vinaigrette dressing. If you want to add some protein, throw in some cooked chicken. Yum!

So true so true, I love seeds and when I have the time I try to go to the correct place to buy them.

Sunflower seeds are made into a "butter" that is a nutritious substitute for peanut butter. I used it in recipes and on bread, crackers, etc. for my grandson while he was allergic to peanuts. It's not the same as peanut butter, but it's really yummy and just as versatile!

AFTER THE GRAND KIDS FINISH WITH CARVING THE PUMPINS--I PLACE THE SEEDS INTO A COLANDER AND RISE WELL. LET DRY ON PAPER TOWEL. PLACE ON A LARGE COOKIE SHEET THAT HAS BEEN SPRAYED WITH OLIVE OIL. BAKE ABOUT 10-15 MIN. I USE THE CONVECTION SETTING ON MY OVEN. SALT IF YOU NEED TO. YOU CAN EAT THE WHOLE SEED.
