~Ellie's Corner~
It was SO FUN to see so many of you again + to meet new friends at the MN State Fair this year!! I am still catching up after those Fun + busy days! :) Are you ready for the leaves to change colors? This is one of my Favorite seasons! I hope you will have time to get out and enjoy the last warm days + changing colors!

At the MN State Fair, a frequent question was: How do you Eat Flax?
There are many ways you can eat flax...

It is about being creative and experimenting-- with how to eat flax seed and what YOU like!! While I prefer to eat my flax with barley like a cereal, my daughter prefers it in yogurt or juice.
We also like to bake with it! You may want to try a few different ways and see how you and your family likes it!

  • Mix ground flax into yogurt
  • Add ground flax seed to any cereal like oatmeal
  • Add ground flax to applesauce
  • We love adding ground flax seed to fruit smoothies
  • Add ground flax seed to soups
  • Sprinkle ground flax seed on a salad
  • Add ground flax seed to beans or chili after cooking
  • Add ground flax to Cottage Cheese
  • Mix ground flax seed with tuna, potato, egg, etc salads
  • Use ground flax seed for filler or as egg substitute in meatloaf and hamburgers
  • Add ground flax to make your Ice Cream "healthy"

Our Customer's FLAX Health Benefits
~in Their Own Words!!

I am 86 years old. I was considering knee replacement surgery and was having a lot of joint pain in my knees, ankles, and arms.

2 months ago I started using flaxseed and flax lignans along with going to a chiropractor and I am convinced flax has greatly diminished my pain + I no longer need to have knee replacement surgery. I have also had less throat phlegm and mucous.
Sincerely, Paul K.

This story and so many like this are why I am so passionate about health and especially flax! If we can give our body the nutrition it so desperately needs, our bodies have a good chance of being able to heal themselves!
