Increase Omega 3 with Flaxseeds

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![1]

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!
