How To Use

Flaxseed is versatile and here are some great ways to add it to your diet:

-Sprinkle it on salads, toast, pizza, ice cream, and so on. The options are nearly endless.  This is the simplest way to add flax to your diet.

-Mix it into your favorite drinks. Whether it’s water, juice, or a smoothie.  It’s a sure way to get your daily intake.

-Replace eggs in your favorite recipes by simply taking 1 teaspoon of milled flax and mixing with 3 tablespoons of water. Never replace more than two eggs in a recipe.

-Add it to your favorite baked goods by replacing the fat in your current recipe with 3x the amount of ground flax.  For example, if your recipe asks for 4 Tb of oil, you can replace the 4Tb oil with 12 Tb ground flax.  You don’t need to replace all of the fat with flax either.
