Flax Seed for Your Family

By Cheryl Tallman and Joan Ahlers

Here are few quick tips for adding more flax seed into your family meals.

If you have never purchased flax seed, it is located in the baking section of most supermarkets. It is available as whole seeds or ground. Whole seeds can be ground using a blender or a coffee grinder. It is recommended that flax seed be eaten finely ground for maximum nutritional benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.
