Got Flax ~Ellie's Corner~
Hi my healthy friends! We are back into the Farmer's Market Season -which I know we all love! It's so great to see many of you back there!
So much of our produce is shipped thousand of miles to our grocery stores and ripened through chemical or other means. It is a blessing to be able to buy fresh, local fruits and vegetables!
I also find that it is often cheaper to buy from local farmer's markets.

Want to find a farmer's market? Check out this great site to find a farmers market near you! (Opens new window) Not only are they TONS of fun, but farmer's markets are a great way to go green, help your local economy and support your local farmers!

I have been VERY busy this last month because my daughter graduated from Medical School and will be moving to Colorado to do her residency in Family Medicine. Once she gets her ~$250,000 bill paid off (yikes!), she wants to work in under-privileged areas. We are so proud of her accomplishments! It's been 21 years in school for her! You can watch a little of her grad here (via fb) if you are so inclined :) -If it isn't obvious, I'm a very proud mom! Ha!

Happy Father's Day out there to all the men in your life who are daddys, papas, fathers, padres, grandfathers, etc :) We have some special deals to help you celebrate the wonderful men in our lives!

Blessings on you!

~Here's More Information~

Have you heard about Cold Milled Flax? What's the big deal? Well, it could mean the difference in getting important nutrients or not. Here is why Cold Milled Flax is important.

Did you know that Omega 3 Flaxseed is a Brain Smart Food? For brain development, Omega 3 is so important for children as well as adults to have in their daily diets. The body cannot make Omega 3, it must get Omega 3 from the foods we eat. This is why for optimal nutrition and brain, omega 3 is critical. Here is more on why Omega 3 Flax is important.

the benefits of Flax seed.

Flax can help with weight loss + weight control in 2 main ways:
1) Flax is rich in fiber. When we eat more fiber, our bodies are happier longer as they have the nutrition (and fullness) they need for a longer time!
2) A high content of Omega 3 fatty acids is essential for our bodies because it tells our brain we are full and that we don’t need to eat for a while.
