Health Benefits of Flaxseed

The world was forever shaken when a flock of diet fads was flying around the news and social media but this particular food was never a secret since the dawn of time. Let us discover the secret on what makes flaxseed special!

Fiber Enriched

Not only one, but two types of fiber are enriched in flaxseed which is soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber softens the stool so it can pass smoothly through the GI tract while the insoluble fiber encourages a healthy digestive system and promotes bowel regularity.

Radiant and Healthy Skin

Flaxseed contains healthy fats which can help improve skin’s hydration and smoothness by strengthening the skin barrier and cell membrane.

Rich in Potent Antioxidant

Polyphenol is known as a health-protective antioxidant because of its ability to shield our body from oxidative stress which causes cancer, heart disease, and premature aging.

Stronger Heart

Omega-3 is an essential nutrient that helps protect your heart from any diseases and one of the best producers of a plant-based Omega-3 (ALA) is flaxseed.

Keto Flaxseed Chips

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Flaxseed Meal (Golden or Brown)
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Onion Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Chili Powder Mix (Cayenne, Paprika, Chili) *optional
  • ½ cup Water

Directions: 

  1. In a bowl, mix ground flax meal and seasonings well. Add water and mix till combined with a spatula. Cover and set the dough aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Pre heat oven to 400°F.
  3. Once the dough is ready, roll it out between 2 parchment papers as thin as you like. (cooking times will vary according to thickness).
  4. Gently pull apart parchment paper from each side of the rolled dough onto the other (this is to make sure it does not stick to the paper while baking).
  5. Place the rolled dough with parchment paper onto a baking sheet and use a pizza cutter to cut into cracker sized pieces.
  6. Bake chips for 10-15 minutes (longer if thicker). Once chips are baked, turn off the oven, remove and break the crackers. Spread the crackers on the baking tray and return to the oven for another 10 minutes with the oven door slightly opened. (this is to dry it out so it gets crispy).
  7. Allow crackers to cool completely before storing them.
