WFMW: Flaxalicious

Pin It Now! We could all use a little more fiber and omega 3s in our diets especially during the holiday season! I don't know about you, but I like to eat lots of "cloggy" foods like fudge, toffee and sugar cookies. :)

Here are a few easy ways that I have incorporated ground flax seed meal into my everyday cookin'.

*Add a couple of TBS to home made biscuit batter.

*Do the same to home made pancake, cornbread or muffin batter.

*Pour some into a blender as you are making a smoothie. You can't even tell it's there.

*Sprinkle a little bit on warm oatmeal or cold cereal.

See, now you don't have to feel too guilty about eating all the "junky" but tasty stuff!

I'd always wondered how to use flax seed. Now, I know. Thanks!

Lori said...

Great ideas! I'd love to try the oatmeal trick for my girls, and the smoothie one for me. Anything that makes me feel better about eating holiday food... ;) Have a great day!

I love this suggestion. We do this with flax meal as well as wheat germ, and I think both ingredients make everything taste better anyway.

Cyndi said...

Oh, and I use the toasted wheat germ. It's nuttier and more flavorful.

Cyndi-- I use wheat germ,too. :) I switch back and forth between that and flax.
