, a recovered yo-yo dieter who lost more than 100 pounds and bonafide food expert, loves flaxseeds. "Not only are they amazing for your body with powerful antioxidant properties (to help prevent cancer, boost your immune system, and more!), their high-fiber content aids digestion and omega-3 fatty acids
keep your heart healthy," she says. They’re also a simple, healthy, delicious ‘slip in’ to almost any meal—flaxseed has a delicate, nutty flavor that does not overpower!
For Tuma-Young, a tablespoon of it in oatmeal, cereal, or even a fruit smoothie or protein shake is an easy way to make it a part of your daily diet. She also suggests adding it to the coating of your chicken dishes, coconut-crusted tilapia, or eggplant parm—the healthy kind of parm, that is.
