Don't forget the salt, the pepper and the flaxseed....

BlogHer Original Post

Add fresh ground flax seed to your morning oatmeal, yogurt, or cereal.
Start your day with an infusion of fiber and omega-3. Just add some flax seed to your oatmeal, yogurt, or cereal.

I usually buy my flaxseed and then grind it up as I need it. But you can also buy it as "meal" at your local health food store. The most important thing to remember about flaxseed is to keep it refrigerated.

Flaxseed is very high in fiber and omega-3 essential fatty acids (the good fats). The best part is, you can add it to just about anything.

My personal favorite is; adding about a tablespoon to my yogurt.

My mother says...Don't forget to salt, pepper, and flaxseed.

Do you have a favorite food that you like to add flaxseed to? Let me know in comments.
