Sorry folks. I haven’t written in a while because I was buried under work after my return from vacation. I’ll start writing regularly again.
During my recent holiday, I came across ‘flax milk’ made from flaxseed. Over the years during my foreign travels, I had tasted rice milk, peanut milk, soy milk and almond milk. This was the first time I saw flax milk. Tasted it and loved it, although no one else in the family thought it was good.
The highlight of flax milk is its omega 3 content. A glass of flax milk has 1200 mg of omega 3 fatty acids and much lesser amounts of omega 6 and omega 9. For those who are lactose-intolerant, this is useful because it contains no lactose. Needless to say that there’s no cholesterol because it’s a plant product.
If you’re wondering how to get good amounts of omega 3 in your diet with no access to flax milk, then include flaxseed powder or fish in your meals regularly. Omega 3 fatty acids are useful for brain function, to possibly reduce the risk of inflammation, heart disease, diabetes and many other modern day health problems.
