Friday Favorite: Hodgson Mill’s Milled Flax Seed

Fiber, Fiber, Fiber. Everyone needs their fiber! But many people, especially those with celiac disease, on a gluten free diet, or those with other various food allergies, understand that getting the minerals, vitamins, protein and fiber your body needs can be real tough.

That is why I am pleased to announce the Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe this week is Hodgson Mill’s Milled Flax Seed.

Flax seeds are a fantastic and versatile way to get a daily dose of fiber. Plus they are gluten and allergen free, all natural, and contain no sugar, cholesterol, trans fat or salt.

I like to stir a couple of tablespoon into my yogurt or blend some into a fruity smoothie, for a filling and satisfying breakfast or mid-day snack.

And according to the folks at Hodgson Mills, flax seeds can also be used as a fat substitute in most recipes. Generally, 3 tablespoons of milled flax seed can replace 1 tablespoon of fat or oil. Also, 1 tablespoon of milled flax seeds, mixed with 3 tablespoons of water can replace 1 egg.

Nutritious, fiber-filled and so very versatile are the reasons why Hodgson Mill’s Milled Flax Seeds get this week’s Friday Favorite honors.

Fiber up!

    I just made cookies for an after school snack for my kids with Hodgson Mill’s Flax seed, both milled and whole. They can’t even taste the nutrition they are getting from inside this sweet, but healthy snack. I actually throw a handful in almost everything I bake. Cakes, cookies, breads, and so many others.
