Carrington Farms Flax Paks
Who would have guessed that a tiny flax seed could have such amazing health benefits? Flax seeds are high in Omega-3’s, full of antioxidants, B vitamins, iron, high in fiber and incredibly easy to incorporate into your diet! I recently had to opportunity to try out Carrington Farms Organic Flax paks, and was super excited to find ways to incorporate this into my family’s diet. When I received the package I was very happy to find that the flax seeds were already milled and portioned into 12 ready to use packets. Many nutritionists recommend using ground flax seeds over whole as whole flax seeds can be passed through the intestines undigested which means that you aren’t getting all of the health benefits.
I also really liked that the flax seeds came conveniently packed in envelopes containing 2 tablespoons with the nutrition label on the back of each package so you can keep track of your caloric and nutritional intake. The best part of the flax paks is how easy it is to add to foods you already eat! I recently added a pack of the milled flax to some whole wheat pita dough and they turned out fantastic, I served them with some homemade hummus for a healthy and delicious snack. I also added half of a pack to my daughter’s oatmeal and she didn’t even notice! There are so many other ways to incorporate this nutrient rich food into your diet: smoothies, pancakes, bread, and even vinaigrettes! I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a simple way to add fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants to their family’s diet!
