For the estimated one-third of Americans who make New Year’s resolutions to eat better and lose weight in the upcoming months, there is now a convenient product line to help them achieve their goals. Carrington Farms, the manufacturer of healthy foods for healthy souls, is offering the ultimate superfood – ready-to-eat Organic Milled Flax Chia Blend.
The Flax Chia blend combines Organic Milled Flax Seeds with Chia Seeds resulting in a nutritious blend that is overflowing with a wealth of health benefits. Chia seeds, low in carbs and gluten free, are packed with Omega 3’s, vitamins, antioxidants, protein, fiber, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc. Organic Milled Flax Seeds are also loaded with Omega 3’s, fiber, antioxidants, and minerals, but have the added benefit of hormone balancing phytoestrogens called lignans, all of which help promote a healthy lifestyle. Together, the perfect balance of the combined blend provides an excellent source of energy and nutrients for lasting heart health and boosted metabolism resulting in the ultimate “Superfood”.
Additionally, the combination of organic milled flax and chia together offers a product that is almost unrivaled in its fiber and healthy fat content and is a great component for helping consumers lose and maintain their weight. Many dieters have found that organic milled flax and chia seeds have been a key to keeping them feeling satisfied.
Nutritionist, Deborah Orlick Levy, MS, RD, encourages her patients to incorporate flax into their daily nutrition plans and explains, “Flax is one of the best sources of Omega 3 healthy fat that can help speed the process of losing weight while also helping to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. It is also beneficial in alleviating symptoms of hypertension, joint pain, and an array of other ailments. I often tell people that you can spend your money on healthy eating now or you can spend your money at the doctor’s office later in life.”
Healthy eating this New Year will begin in the kitchen and the Flax Chia blend offers the convenience of nutrition that can easily and tastily be incorporated into the daily meal prep routine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With a delicious and subtle nutty flavor, it can be sprinkled over cereals, oatmeal or yogurt for breakfast or used as a tasty topping for salads or casseroles for lunch and dinner.
