Spicy Sunflower seeds

I started my day with hot lemon water and all my supplements.

This max stress B from healthybeyondhype.com is amazing. Gives me so much energy!
Spicy Sunflower Seeds
I made some spicy sunflower seeds this morning to have for my mid morning snack.
I put 1 cup of raw sunflower seeds on a cookies sheet and mixed in 1/2 tsp coconut oil and 1 tablespoon cajun spice mix (I had already made a large batch the night before)

Cajun Spice Mix- makes 1.5 cups (store in airtight container, cool, dry location- good for 4-6 months)
1/4 cup sea salt
2 tbsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 cup Spanish paprika
1.5 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tbsp fresh ground white pepper
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp sweet basil
1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp ground coriander

Easy Breakfast Wrap- 202 calories
  • brown rice tortilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond butter
  • 1/4 cup pear
  • 1/4 cup peaches
  • cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp agave
wrapped up and grilled till golden brown- amazing and kept me full from 5:30am-10:15am.

In between boot camp classes I had my ginger peach green tea. I planned on having my sunflower seeds, but I was still full from breakfast so I saved them for after the second class.
The sunflower seeds are so good with the Cajun spice mix. They also kept me satisfied for a long time. Great snack!
