These tiny flaxseeds (AKA linseed) appear rather unassuming but these powerful little seeds provide 3 incredible benefits to your diet.
Buy them ground or ideally grind them yourself before serving (unground will pass straight through you and you'll miss out on the benefits).
How to serve flaxseeds:
Sprinkle on muesli, porridge, yoghurt, soups, casseroles (once cooked) or bake them in your bread. Try adding them to your smoothie. You’ll love their nutty flavour! Start slowly with 1 teaspoon and build up to 1-2 tablespoons a day.
Organic, cold pressed flaxseed oil is a good source of anti-inflammatory omega 3 but to benefit from the fibre and the lignans you need to eat the ground seeds.
It's definitely worthwhile making flaxseed part of your Stellar eating plan.
