I always add milled flax seeds to my morning smoothies. Flax seeds contain several b vitamins, are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, high in fiber and contain magnesium. When flax and chia seeds are combined together you have the ultimate superfood.
Chia seeds are low in carbs, gluten free and packed with Omega 3’s, vitamins, antioxidants, protein, fiber and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc. Organic Milled Flax Seeds also contain hormone balancing phytoestrogens called lignans. Carrington Farms has put together fax and chia seeds in a nutritious ready-to-eat Milled Flax Chia Blend. Together this blend provides and excellent source of energy and nutrients for lasting heart health and a metabolism boost.
Carrington Farms Ready-to-eat Flax Chia blend can be added to yogurt or smoothies for breakfast or as a topping to salads or used as a binding agent in meat loaf, casseroles or hamburgers. I also add this blend to my whole grain oatmeal.
Organic milled flax and chia together can also help you reach your weight loss goals. Many dieters have found that organic milled flax and chia seeds have been a key to keeping them feeling satisfied. Nutritionist, Deborah Orlick Levy, MS, RD, encourages her patients to incorporate flax into their daily nutrition plans and explains, “Flax is one of the best sources of Omega 3 healthy fat that can help speed the process of losing weight while also helping to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. It is also beneficial in alleviating symptoms of hypertension, joint pain, and an array of other ailments. I often tell people that you can spend your money on healthy eating now or you can spend your money at the doctor’s office later in life.”
