Flaxseed makes the Daily Dozen!

Golden Valley FlaxDr. Michael Greger, M.D. , the author of How Not to Die , recommends a list of foods that people who aspire to healthy living should eat daily.  He calls it the Daily Dozen.  In the middle of the list, after “other vegetables,” and before “nuts,” is the category , “Flaxseeds!”  Seeing Flaxseed right in the middle of the Daily Dozen made this Flax Lady grin from ear to ear!
