For the estimated one-third of Americans who resolve to eat better and lose weight in the upcoming months, there is now a healthy, 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—to enable Americans to stay true to their resolutions and live their highest quality life in 2013.
Carrington Farms 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-3s, vitamins, antioxidants, protein, fiber and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc. Organic Milled Flax Seeds are also loaded with omega-3s, fiber, antioxidants and minerals, but have the added benefit of phytoestrogens called lignans. 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 offers a product that is almost unrivaled in its fiber and healthy fat content. Many dieters have found that organic milled flax and chia seeds have been a key to keeping them feeling satisfied. Deborah Orlick Levy, MS, RD, encourages her patients to incorporate flax into their daily nutrition plans and explains, “Both flax and chia are some of the best sources of omega-3 healthy fat that can help speed the process of losing weight while also supporting heart and joint health.”
Healthy eating this year will begin in the kitchen, and the Flax Chia blend offers the convenience of nutrition that can be incorporated into the daily meal prep routine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With a delicious, subtle nutty flavor, it can be sprinkled over cereals, oatmeal or yogurt or used as a tasty topping for salads or casseroles. It can even be used in place of eggs, or as a coating on kid-friendly chicken nuggets.
