  • 2/3 cup ground flax seed

Notes

  • Read more about the therapeutic properties of flax.
  • I always have a container of this in the freezer. I keep a 1/3 cup measuring cup right in the container for quick portioning in the mornings.
  • It is important to keep this mix in the fridge or freezer to avoid oxidation of the delicate oils in the flax seeds and nuts.
