#2 suggestion for working towards a healthy lifestyle:
Give yourself some flaxseed!!
Flax seed is incredible, seriously!!
I swear by it. And my family as well! Even though most of the time, they are unaware that I add it to their food 😀 mwahaha
Flax seed is an amazing source of fibre and can be added to everything and anything without changing the flavour or texture of the food. “It may be tiny, but it’s mighty.” It is technically a grain, but has far larger amounts of fibre, antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids than any other grain. Flax seed is also low in carbohydrates, high in B-vitamins and magnesium.
A good way to add flax seed to your diet is to add it to foods you eat everyday. Ground flax seed can be added to oatmeal, smoothies, soup, yoghurt, curry, stews, cakes, bread, anything!
When using it in baking, substitute part of the flour with it. Aim for replacing about a quarter or a bit less, so that it doesn’t affect the taste, look or texture.
I love adding it to my breakfast as the fibre keeps me fuller for longer 🙂 and reduces the portion size needed to fill me up!
