FLAX is such a powerful seed that it is now again called a medicine. As they say, “Let food be your medicine.” Research has now proven what our forefathers and even the Egyptians in 5000 B.C. knew about flax. They used flax as a prevention and cure for diseases.
Today research tells us that flax contains many beneficial nutrients that can help prevent and treat diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, inflammatory & autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and lupus, menopausal symptoms and cancers such as breast, colon, lung and prostate.
A suggested amount that was used in many trials was 2-3 tablespoons, so Winnie decided to create many delicious recipes of muffins with 2 heaping tablespoons of crushed flax in each. Now it is easy to enjoy one of these muffins and not think of it as a medicine, but as delicious food.
Each muffin recipe in A MUFFIN A DAY cookbook comes with a nutritional analysis and detailed instructions. Bake a variety of muffins and freeze them so everyone you serve will be able to have the kind they like.
A GLUTEN FREE FLAX MUFFIN
As well, Winnie has now added 2 very special recipes to this cookbook that take only a minute to bake in the microwave.
Just mix the batter in a large round cup, microwave a minute and you have a huge muffin that also contains 2 heaping tablespoons of flax. These 2 recipes have no flour so they are great for anyone who cannot have gluten or grains.
NUTRIENTS IN FLAX
This cookbook also provides pages of helpful information on the nutrients found in flax and how they can benefit us. Flax contains protein, lignans, omega-3, fibre, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, folic acid and small amounts of other nutrients that can help:
