Flaxseed is believed to have originated in Egypt. (Fast Flax Fact!)

A bowl of flaxseed, blueberries and yoghurtFlaxseed is believed to have originated in Egypt.  The ancient Egyptians used Flax for healthy eating and it’s healing purposes.  They also used the flax fiber to make clothes, fishnets, and paper products.

Today, we continue to use the flax fiber to make a variety of items from coffee mugs, toothbrushes, to skateboards!  Flax in rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which has been shown to be beneficial for heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease, breast and prostate cancer, and a variety of other health problems.  How do I incorporate this healthy seed into my diet?  I add 2 tablespoons of ground flax to my oatmeal or juice in the morning.  It is also a perfect addition to a smoothie, or a serving of yoghurt.
