Flaxible Benefits

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014 @ 7:29 AM

Rich in fiber and Omega–3’s, flax seed has been renowned for its myriad of health benefits since ancient times. In fact, the early Greeks and Romans snacked on a handful or two of flaxseeds. Bob’s Red Mill Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal (16 ounces) and Natural Raw Whole Flaxseed (24 ounces) conveniently provide you with all the amazing perks of flax from the company committed to “delighting your family with stone ground goodness.” Add flaxseed meal to your hot or cold cereal, pancakes, and waffles for a robust nutty flavor, and save the raw whole seeds for when you want to add a little crunch. Try using ground flax seed instead of eggs in baking and cooking. Simply add 1 tablespoon ground flax seed with 3 tablespoons warm water, let sit until a gel forms and use for 1 egg in recipe (pancakes, quick breads). • Josh Dwinell, Specialty Grocery
