Health Benefits of Flax Seeds, Chia Seeds and Hemp Seeds (Page 3)


Healthy Flax Seeds

Flax delivers more ALA than any other plant food. Grind seeds in your (cleaned) coffee grinder or food processor before adding to baked goods or sprinkling over cereal (your body can’t digest the seeds whole). Or mix flaxseed oil into salad dressings or smoothies.

Nutritional boons of flax seeds (per tbsp.): 1 g protein, 2 g fiber, 2 g omega-3s.
