It's just a simple seed, right? One of the oldest grains in the world might be the key to your best health yet, and it is so simple to add to almost any recipe!
Hello Friends! How is it already September? I hope your little ones have enjoyed their first few weeks back at school, and you're enjoying the last (very warm) summer days! Did you enjoy my recipes last month? This month we are going to be talking about one of my favorite items to cook and bake with, Flax Seeds! Again, these little seeds haven't just been a trend in recent years. They are one of the oldest superfoods in the world and have a really interesting history.
These little seeds have been cultivated as early as 3000 BC in Babylon. They were cultivated in ancient Egypt and China and played a huge role in Asian medicines for thousands of years. Powerful leaders like Charles the Great and Charlemagne ordered their subjects and warriors to eat them for their incredible nutrients. They were once called "Linum Usitatissimum" meaning the most useful, and for good reason.
Today these seeds are categorized as a superfood and called one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. Rightfully so!
