Grind dem Seeds

There are lots of really healthy things that we can put into our meals that help with digestion, cardiovascular, nervous system ect. and one of my favorites are Flax Seeds. Such a little seed that does so much good. One thing that I didn’t realize until now is the importance of grinding the seeds in a coffee grinder or equivalent. Apparently, the outside shell is so tough, that the seed can go right through the system without being broken down. 

So there ya go. A little thought for you if you are a fan of the seed and want to get the most out of it. Below is what they say are the benefits:

 

  • Rich in alpha linolenic acid, omega-3
