3 ways to include flaxseed in your diet

Being a high-fibre food, flaxseed is rich in nutrients. It contains good amounts of alpha-linolenic acid(ALA) and omega-3 fatty acid, which can help to lower LDL (Bad cholesterol) levels and improve cardiovascular health. It is recommended to consume 1-2 tablespoon of flaxseed per day, where ground flaxseed can be better digested compared to whole flaxseed. There are 3 easy ways to include flaxseed in your diet:

1. Breakfast: Put a tablespoon of ground flaxseed in a bowl of cereal or oatmeal, mix some milk or top it with some fruits to make it more appetizing. Adding a tablespoon of flaxseed into a cup of yogurt would also make a healthy breakfast.

2. Lunch: Flaxseed can also be used as salad dressing. For example, you can add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed into your salmon and spinach salad, and this will greatly increase its protein, omega-3 fatty acid and fibre contents.

3. Dinner: You can add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed in a bowl of broccoli soup after boiled.

The above are the methods that can help you to include flaxseed 3 meals a day, you can make some changes according to your own preference.
