Flaxseed is an important ingredient for health and weight loss. It's full of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids; lignans, which are powerful antioxidants; and fiber (both insoluble and soluble), keeping your belly full so you won't snack! When using flaxseed in recipes it's best to use flaxseed meal rather than just the seeds as our bodies cannot easily digest them. Read about more of the health benefits of flaxseed here.
