Flax seeds are so nutrient dense that they earned their status as a SuperFood Sidekick. These small but powerful seeds are one of the best plant sources of omega-3s. They also contain necessary fiber, magnesium, iron and potassium. Flax seeds are also the leading source of lignins which are phytoestrogens. With just a small amount (1-2 tablespoons a day), you will get its super benefits and be on your way to better health.
Flax seeds range in color from red to brown. We like these brown whole flax seeds from Wheat Montana. They’re fresh and come in a bag that has a zip-close seal. In only 2 tablespoons of these flax seeds you get 4.5 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein.
Flax seeds must be ground in order for you to absorb all the wonderful nutrients. Grind them in small amounts so they stay fresh and keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator because they can spoil very quickly. You can add flax seeds to many things including cereal, yogurt, smoothies and baked goods.
