Trying to increase your intake of Omega 3’s? Flaxseeds are a great choice and a good alternative if you are not a fan of cold-water fish. You can add flaxseed to your diet by either purchasing flaxseed oil or using the whole seed. By using the whole seed you add to your diet protein: fiber, minerals, phytochemicals (such as lignan), and omega 3’s. Lignan is also believed to have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-cancer properties. 100 grams of flaxseeds will produce 26 grams of protein and fiber!
Grind up some flaxseeds and add them to your cereal, salads, or any other food you like. They don’t have a strong taste and they add a great crunch to any meal!
