Chocolate flax meal

Flaxseeds are a mysterious ingredient that recently started showing up in common packaged foods in an attempt to make them healthier. What else do we know about this product? That it’s tasteless on its own? Maybe you’ve heard that flaxseeds are one of the omega-3 sources, too. But there are way more benefits to flaxseeds than that.

Research on a group of people with hypertension (high blood pressure) showed that a tablespoon of ground flaxseeds daily effectively lowers blood pressure and could be 2-3 times more efficient than powerful antihypertensive drugs. Moreover, these seeds showed to decrease the risk of breast and prostate cancer and help decrease tumor growth in patients with already existing cancer.

Now that we know that flaxseeds are super beneficial for our health, how do we add them to our diets? First of all, it’s important to grind the flaxseeds before consuming them (or buy a pre-ground product) as that outer shell is hardly digestible.

There are many easy ways to add flaxseeds to the meals, e.g. sprinkle some ground seeds onto your porridge, salad, stir it into a hot meal, or add it to your smoothie. If you wanna take it further and load on the goodness of flax, try out this Chocolate Flax Meal. It’s a delicious alternative to a porridge that is low-carb, gluten-free, and high in protein.
