Relax About Flax: Simple Ways to Add Flax Seeds to Your Diet!

Flax seeds are small seeds that, at first glance, look like the sesame seeds used on hamburger buns. They are very inexpensive and you can grind them in a designated mini coffee grinder or chew them up in their natural form. Add ground or whole flax seeds to:

  • smoothies
  • throw them in your muffin or pancake batter
  • sprinkle them on your oatmeal or breakfast cereal
  • add them to your salad at lunch

Flax seeds are high in omega-3 oils. Omega-3 is not something the body produces on its own, so it’s great to supplement whenever possible. Did you know that omega-3 breaks down existing cholesterol and deposits a thin barrier to prevent its reformation, all on its merry way through the human digestive tract? So relax about flax!
