A Muffin a Day
You won’t feel guilty about having a muffin for breakfast or lunch if you try a recipe from this cookbook. Each tasty muffin contains a generous serving of two tablespoons of flax.
Farming has always been part of my life and I have a passion for creating appetizing and healthy recipes that support the Canadian farm industry and promote healthy lifestyles. When I learned about the amazing health benefits of adding at least two tablespoons of flax a day into our daily diets I knew I had to create recipes for muffins that would appeal to everyone, even children.
For thousands of years people have recognized the health benefits of flax seeds. About 5000 B.C. Egyptian doctors carried flaxseed in their medical bags. About 650 B.C. Hippocrates, in whose name all modern doctors swear their professional oath, wrote about the benefits of flax to treat abdominal pain. In the 8th century, Charles the Great passed laws requiring his subjects to consume flaxseed regularly.
The tiny flax seed is the original superfood. The fields of blue flowers that dot the Prairie landscape during summer months are flax plants. Each flower produces these tiny nutritional powerhouses that are loaded with dietary fibre, omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, antioxidants and lignans. Scientific research shows that these nutrients may lower the risk and help manage many chronic health diseases.
