COOKING WITH FLAX OIL

Incorporating flax oil in your diet is a great way to add in more Omega 3 fatty acids that most people are deficient in, and benefit our entire bodies as these oils help create healthy cell membranes for all the cells in our body.

Tips about 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.
