once upon a time not long ago – for like four months, i was a pretty strict vegan. i just wanted to try it out… see how i felt. i will do it again, for sure – but for the most part, i just eat what my body tells me to and sometimes that includes organic, humane animal products.
when i was eating vegan i wondered how to get my omegas in my diet because i noticed when i took fish oil it gave me heartburn and i didn’t like the way it tasted. i haven’t gone back to fish oil since discovering flax oil. now – it’s not anything new to me, i’ve always known about flax… i just didn’t supplement with it until recently when it was suggested to me that i take it versus the fish oil.
omegas are good for our hair, skin, nails, heart, blood, and brain… among many other things. they help us stay “lubricated” and give our skin a lovely glow. i take flax oil by the capsule daily, but i love being able to buy the whole seeds in bulk such as this….
plus, it’s super cost-effective that way – this jar cost me about 50 cents! since it’s all about pinching pennies these days, i just buy a little at a time – who can beat that though, nutrition on a dime – literally!
i choose to buy it whole because, well – i own a vitamix. 🙂 and so i know i’m getting the nutritional benefits of the entire seed and i just toss it right in my smoothie creation…
in this case i mixed it with frozen berries, frozen mango, fresh spinach, a couple small dates, and coconut milk…
