Like so very many people, I am starting the new year off with a renewed focus on eating and living healthy. Until recently, I had become very lazy about my health. Not long ago, my sister was shocked to learn that I did not take any sort of vitamins or supplements. I received quite a scolding from her and promised to make some changes. One of the first changes I made was to add Linwoods Health Foods flaxseed products to my diet. Linwoods offers a variety of superfoods that can easily be incorporated into your daily meals.

What are Superfoods?
from their website
“Super Foods are also known as Functional Foods or a food that delivers a Structural or Functional health benefit. Our Super Foods range offices you a wide variety of health benefits due to the vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids that are found naturally in these foods. When used daily, they may help maintain a healthy heart, boost your energy and support a well-balanced diet and active lifestyle.”
I had an opportunity to try 3 of Linwoods 6 available flaxseed varieties: Ground Organic Flaxseed, Ground Flaxseed Almonds Brazil Nuts Walnuts & Q10, and Ground Flaxseed Sunflower Pumpkin Sesame Seeds & Goji Berries from Linwoods. Flaxseed products were totally new to me, so a little research was in order. This is some of what I have learned…
Ground Organic Flaxseed, like that found in Linwoods Super Foods, is one of natures richest plant sources of Omega 3. Omega 3, which is not made by our body and must be obtained by our diet, is important to maintain a healthy heart and brain function. It is also a great source of fiber, aiding with digestion and weight management.

It has been very easy to incorporate Linwoods flaxseed products into my diet. Just a spoonful added to my oatmeal, smoothies, scrambled eggs, or yogurt is all it takes. You can even add it to sauces, soups, and salads. You don’t even notice that it’s there since it’s finely ground and doesn’t have a flavor that will interfere with your meal. I have been making a lot of fat-free yogurt and fruit smoothies lately with a couple spoonfuls of Linwoods’ ground flaxseed mixed in. I don’t like swallowing pills, so this is such an easy way for me to add important nutrients to my diet.
I am so excited about getting healthy in the New Year with Linwoods flaxseed products! What healthy changes are you making for the new year?
