Enrich Your Oatmeal!


Ground flaxseed is rich with omega 3s and omega 6s that every body needs.  It’s also a good source of dietary fiber with a great little nutty flavor to boot!  Grinding it is necessary for your body to absorb and digest the nutrients.  Grind flaxseed in a coffee grinder for 10 seconds or so (or you can buy it already ground) and mix it into oatmeal to add extra nutrition and fiber to your diet.  Kids that like oatmeal will like it – but if you think your child won’t, just add a little cinnamon or honey (local raw honey is the most nutritious if you have it & it can help fight against local outdoor allergies).  Also consider adding ground flaxseed to your smoothies, yogurt, oatmeal cookies, banana bread, and muffin recipes!
