, the manufacturer of healthy foods for healthy souls, is offering the ultimate superfood – ready-to-eat Organic Milled Flax Chia Blend. Flax is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, and minerals, but also has the added benefit of hormone balancing phytoestrogens called lignans. Chia seeds, low in carbs and gluten free, are also packed with omega-3s, antioxidants, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc. Together they deliver the perfect balance of nutrients to give you energy and boost your heart health.
Nutrition expert Deborah Orlick Levy, MS, RD, encourages her clients to incorporate flax into their daily nutrition plans and explains, “Flax is one of the best sources of omega-3, which are healthy fats, that can help speed the process of losing weight while also helping to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke," she explains. "It is also beneficial in alleviating symptoms of hypertension, joint pain, and an array of other ailments. I often tell people that you can spend your money on healthy eating now or you can spend your money at the doctor’s office later in life.”
The Flax Chia Blend offers the convenience of nutrition that can be easily incorporated into the daily meal prep routine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With a delicious and subtle nutty flavor, it can be sprinkled over cereals, oatmeal or yogurt for breakfast or used as a tasty topping for salads or casseroles for lunch and dinner. This blend can also replace eggs in recipes that need a binder.
Other great products from Carrington Farms include super convenient single serve Ready-To-Eat Organic Milled Flax Paks and Organic Extra Virgin Unrefined Coconut Oil. Packed with a pre-measured daily dosage, Organic Milled Flax Paks are the perfect size to carry in purses, laptop bags or lunch boxes. Hailed as “the healthiest oil on earth,” Carrington Farms’ Organic Coconut Oil is the ideal replacement for artery-clogging fats found in butter and cooking oils and can be used for sautéing vegetables, added to smoothies or even as skin and hair moisturizer.More vegan diet tips!
