Flax Sprinkles for our Kids and You!

December 8th, 2009 · 3 Comments

Time to discuss ah hem, fiber.  How much we need daily and how much we are actually getting?!  If you eat TONS of fruits and veggies daily, you are probably doing good in this category.  But, some of us (or at least our kids) might not eat enough roughage.

I introduced this product to my kid  “as here are some healthy sprinkles for your oatmeal”.    And, he bought right into it and now asks for it when we have oatmeal for breakfast!  From a mother’s standpoint, my kids need more fiber.  Yes, they eat fairly well, but, still, they are still not getting five servings of fruit and vegetables daily!  It takes a lot of effort on both my end as well as theirs to eat all the healthy foods that they should.  In comes Flax Sprinkles….quick and easy way to add 2-4 grams of fiber without my kids’ knowing it or tasting it!!

My kids and I are thankful we got to try FLAX sprinkles by Stober Farms.  2800 mg of Omega -3, 3 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber per serving.  We sprinkled it on our oatmeal, in our pancake recipe, on yogurt,  and in our smoothies.  As for flavor, I (and we) didn’t not notice any particular flavor what so ever- which is good, I think when discussing flax.  One cool thing is that you can use this to substitute eggs, margarine or butter in a recipe!  Worked great for us.

You can read more about the amazing benefits of Golden Flax Seed Sprinkles on their website.

You can buy FLAX USA online for $8 and I’d bet it’ll last several months!

    Here’s a better plan: buy a small coffee grinder (less than $20). Buy a bag of whole flaxseeds. Grind the seeds on “fine” right before using them. Grind only the quantity that you plan to use right then. Freshly ground flaxseed is much better for you. I learned this from the “Budwig Diet”.
