Why is there so much buzz about flaxseeds lately?
Why it’s a super food:
- Flaxseed is packed with omega-3 fatty acids.
- Flaxseeds are packed with soluble fiber which may help aid digestion.
- Flaxseeds also contain insoluble fiber which may help stabilize blood sugar levels.
- Flaxseeds can be ground up and added to yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes, and other foods. Whole flaxseeds can be added on top of salads!
Here’s a great smoothie recipe that incorporates flaxseeds:
1 Cup blueberries
1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed
1/2 Cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 Cup skim milk
1 Teaspoon honey
Directions: Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Serve cold. Serves one.
