Get the Facts on Flax!

 
 
 
 
 
 














Ever try flaxseeds?    Eating flaxseeds has some wonderful benefits and are virtually tasteless.  You can add them to your muffins, pancakes, smoothies, and lots more!
 
Why, you ask?
 
Here are the facts:  Just 2 Tablespoons has 4 g fiber, 4 g carbohydrate, 3 g protein and 2400 mg omega-3 fatty acids.  The Omega 3 fatty acids may help protect against inflammation and may help your moods.  Yes, I know you may have heard that the Omega 3's from fish are more effective.  But when you are not eating a fish meal or if you don't like fish this is a great option.  Also, this is a great way to get more fiber in your kiddos. 

What kind to buy?  You want to be sure to get GROUND flaxseeds in order to get their nutritional benefits.

Storage?  Store the opened bag in your refrigerator once opened.  Some companies make individual serving sized packets which are great so that you don't have to have the bag in your fridge.
 
How much? I always add 1/8 cup to muffins, pancakes, breads.  If you are making a smoothie I would add 1-2 tablespoons.  
 
Enjoy!
