Yes!  You bet I do, and I’m excited about it.  If you seen my smoothie recipes you’ve noticed that most of them call for ground flax-seed.  While at Costco the other day I discovered a 40 oz bag of fine milled organic flax-seed produced by Nature’s Path.  I was truly thrilled….who knew that ground flax could make one gitty? 

Well one reason is, no longer will I have to take the extra step of grinding the flax-seed in my mini grinder!!  Also, I’ll now easily be able to add some omega-3 to any of my dishes: cereal, yogurt, muffins, pancakes, sauces, yes smoothies, and anything else that requires mixing and blending.

Not convinced flax is for you?  Here are some possible health benefits that might get you going.  Just by adding flax-seed to your diet there’s some evidence that suggest it may help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.  Not to mention it contains heart, healthy omega-3 essential fatty acids.  It also contains the antioxidant lignan to help protect cell function.  Lastly, it packs a punch with soluble and insoluble fiber which aids in digestion, and lets you feel fuller longer. 

At the cost of $6.99 you’ll own 2.5 lbs of health protection that you can use at your will while taking some of the “grind” out of the kitchen.  Come on…you’ve got to be feeling a little gitty now…..No?

Enjoy!
