Sunflower chips might be as nutritious as your regular meal
Compare Sunflower chips to eggs, chicken nuggets, beef patties and you will see - that it has a comparable amount of protein. When you mom mentions empty calories - point her on the saturated fat raw. When she argues about more vegetables in your diet - you may calmly say - I get enough fiber from my snacks.

Your mom can point that chips are high in fat and calories. You can raise the risk of weight gain and obesity. Being overweight or obese increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease and some forms of cancer.

The main benefit of the plant protein is that it’s lower in cholesterol and saturated fat that reduces the risk of the cardiovascular disease.
The main reason fiber is beneficial is that it feeds the "good" bacteria in your microbiome. Functioning as prebiotics, fiber increases our levels of the "good" bacteria, which protect our body from food-borne diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
And they’re baked, never fried. Gluten-Free. Allergen-Free.

1/3 of the food wasted. But do you know, that even before you start thinking of wasting food, the manufacturer already wasted half of it? For example, when the oil pressed out from Sunflower seeds, the meal (solid part of the seeds) wasted or fed to cows, still having more protein than beef. Isn't it ridiculous?
