Flax seeds, have you used them in your baking before? How about smoothies or sprinkled on your salad or yogurt? I have to tell you I love how I feel since I’ve been using the Carrington Farms flax seeds. They’re 100% certified organic and gluten free. I had never used flax seeds before and had this misconception that the fiber would make me “go” too much or that it was for the “heath nuts” and then I realized I was silly, I’m health conscious and everyone needs to get their dose of Omega 3’s and fiber, why not with 2 tablespoons each day added to the stuff I’m already eating?
I’m not a nutritionist but I know that adding the flax seeds to my smoothies (which is my favorite way of using them) gives me a lot of energy, which is why I found it funny to read on the Carrington Farms website that flax seed has been referred to as “running food”! I’m no runner but sometimes I do need the extra energy to keep me going! Any working mother or mother period – needs her energy!
If you’re new to using flax seeds and you haven’t baked with them before (they can easily be added to your muffin mix) or sprinkled them on your yogurt, cottage cheese or salad I suggest checking out the tips from Carrington Farms and finding out new ways to use the flax seeds, the health benefits and their tips for newbies – like drinking more water!
