My ground flax seeds! ๐ŸŒฟ

Everyone knows that ground flaxseeds are the jam, and it’s not only because it keeps your poop on point ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ’ฉ Whole flaxseeds are awesome too, but your body doesn’t digest whole seeds, so you end up pooping them out whole. (**Don’t listen to me, just look at your poop! ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ’ฉ**). ย Flaxseeds are full of fiber, Omega-3s and host many benefits to us humans. ย I got into Omega-3s to help me with my eczema/skin pain relief, and to keep my joints healthy with athletics that I do such as dancing and fitness. ย I have severe food allergies to all fish and shellfish, so my Omega-3 sources are always vegetarian (flax), never fish sourced (for example: salmon, herring, tuna, etc).

Omega-3 fatty acids can help your health in some of the following ways: ๐Ÿ”นImprove skin health, ๐Ÿ”นkeep your joints healthy (super important when you’re very active or athletic)/helps improve arthritis, ๐Ÿ”นhelps with depression and anxiety, ๐Ÿ”นhelps maintain brain health, anti-inflammatory, ๐Ÿ”นplus other benefits.

You can get Omega-3s via a proper diet or supplements. Flax/ground flax can be purchased at your local health food store or at some grocery stores.

You can add flax to a lot of foods: cereals, yogurt, smoothies, salads, meatloaf, lentil/bean loaf, baked goods, burger patties, and whatever else you want to experiment with!

Happy pooping! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ’ฉโœŒ๏ธ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ
