Health Facts
Why else do you need to add this recipe to your collection of health recipes? Well, flax seeds are an incredible source of both soluble and insoluble fibre! How does soluble fibre benefit you? Soluble fibre assists with balancing blood sugar levels, and when your blood sugar levels are balanced your sugar cravings decrease! When sugar cravings are under control, the risk of binge eating dramatically decreases. Healthy, balanced eating habits are very important when trying to reach your fitness goals. Insoluble fibre also promotes healthy weight levels as it regulates digestion and ensures that the body is eliminating waste properly.
