Are You Eating Flaxseed?

If you aren't currently eating flaxseed, you probably should be!  There are other posts on this blog regarding flaxseed and its healthy benefits.  As I added some to my oatmeal this morning, I thought it might be a good idea to put out another reminder to be sure you are adding it to yours.  It is so simple to add some ground flaxseed to oatmeal, baked goods, smoothies, etc and it doesn't even affect the taste.  Reminder; among the many healthy benefits of flaxseeds are their omega 3 fatty acids that are heart-healthy, lignans that serve as antioxidants, and don't forget they are high fiber which is very helpful to maintaining a healthy digestive tract.

Here is a good tip for you: You can make your baked goods healthier by substituting half the fat (butter, margarine, oil, etc) called for with ground flaxseed!
