Featuring lots of anti-oxidants and omega 3 fatty acids, flax seed is a cancer patient’s healthy alternative to a number of other fats and grains. Since flax seed oil can spoil or be altered during processing. The best and tastiest way to add flax seed to your diet is by using milled flax seed. I buy a brand called Hodgson Mill–available in most grocery stores and even Walmart. Inexpensive and tasty, I put several tablespoons full into my daily, blended “nutritional sludge.” (a lot like a smoothie) Pattie and I also add it to any baking we do. Sometimes we put it on cereal like you would wheat germ. Low cal, great for staying regular, omega 3’s and anti-oxidants. Sounds like a “superfood” to me–right up there with blueberries and kale.
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat & Pattie
