No coincidence that this was Sue’s favorite flower. Sue always brought her sunshine,  was beautiful inside and out, and was strong to the core.

Just like Sue sunflower shoot greens are chock full of goodness. Provide lots of protein, iron and calcium. Vitamins A, B, C and E

Sunflower seeds are rich in vitamin E, magnesium and selenium.
