Flax seed

This can be purchased in several forms: ground, whole or oil form.  To get the best nutritional value, it is probably best to buy the whole seeds.  Ground flax seeds have a nutty flavor. This seed can be added into the baking, smoothies and much much more.

Some actually use flax seeds as a replacement for fat in cooking and baking.  It has a ratio of 3:1( 3 tbs flax seeds for 1 tbs margarin, oil or butter).

When it comes to nutrition it has omega-3 acids, dietary fiber, several minerals and vitamins.
