This is going to be a short and sweet post about Flax seeds. I use them regularly and the most common way for me to use them is either in my oatmeal, in a smoothie or a hot chutney. I don’t find them very appetizing in any other form. This strawberry flax seed smoothie can be made with frozen strawberries as well.
This is one of the most ancient plants known to humans and there is some evidence that flax cultivation may have started somewhere during the Neolithic Era. In addition to flax seeds supporting digestive health, cardiovascular health, antioxidant benefits etc, it also has many other interesting uses dating back to about 3000 BC.
