Adding Flaxseeds into your Daily Diet

Now that you know the benefits of adding Flaxseeds into your diet from my post: Healthy Breast Tip: Flaxseeds!, let’s learn how to incorporate them into your daily diet.

First off- It is very important to eat ground flaxseeds and not whole flaxseeds.  If you try to eat them whole, they will simply pass through your system without being digested. When they are ground, however, they can be easily absorbed and broken down to get the benefits.   A basic coffee grinder can be used to grind a few tablespoons of whole flaxseed whenever you need it.

Here are some ideas and ways you can eat Flax Seed:

  • Add to smoothies
  • Mix ground flax into yogurt
  • Add ground flax seed to oatmeal
  • Sprinkle on top of salads

You can pretty much sprinkle them on top of anything (they don’t change the taste that much)

Enjoy!

Be Well,
