PhotobucketTips for using flax seed oil:
• It should always be kept in the refrigerator in a dark bottle to maintain freshness.
• Never cook with flax oil or heat it on the stove or in the microwave. — this destroys the benefits of the oil.
• As the oil sits over time it loses its freshness, smelling and tasting stronger.
Fruit Smoothie
1/2 banana
2 ice cubes
1 cup juice (try pineapple, apple, grape, etc.)
1 tablespoon yogurt
1 tablespoon flax seed oil
Add all ingredients together in a blender and mix. Try adding protein powder, fresh or frozen berries, cherries, or whatever fruit you like. Great for breakfast or a snack.
Dill Dressing
1/3 cup minced fresh dill
1/4 cup cider vinegar or lemon juice
1 & 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon honey or rice syrup
