Flaxseed is a great nutrient-dense food to incorporate into your diet today! It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. One tablespoon is only 37 calories and has two grams of fiber! Be sure to grind as needed in your coffee grinder or purchase ground meal to maximize this superfood. In addition, freeze flaxseed to prolong it’s shelf life and prevent the healthy fats in this seed from going rancid. Ground flaxseed can be a great addition to any smoothie, baked good, or salad!
