How to eat sunflower seeds

This post isn't really about how to eat sunflower seeds, but I've found that if you say something like that in the title of your post, then you get a buttload of Google hits. Actually, now that I think about it, over the weekend, I was eating a salad that my mother-in-law made and it had sunflower seeds in it. After I finished my salad, I wanted more sunflower seeds so I stole them off of my wife's plate.

My mother-in-law saw this and filled a little bowl full of unshelled sunflower seeds. I ate so many, I got sick.

I never understood what people meant by "too much of a good thing" until that evening with my bowl full of sunflower seeds. That's why, for this post, if you learn one thing about how to eat sunflower seeds, it's this:

Rule Number 1: Don't eat them when they're already shelled.

Seriously.
