This breakfast is not only tasty, but it is also incredibly healthy! Flax is one of the highest sources of soluble fiber, which cleanses the colon and reduces cholesterol. The apples contain 5 grams of fiber each, including pectin, which is very beneficial for cleansing the gallbladder. Flax seeds contain up to 800 times more active lignans (plant estrogens found in the outer husk) than other plant sources. Studies have shown that these powerful antioxidants may reduce the risk of hormone-sensitive cancers such as breast and prostate cancer.
Note: If you choose to grind your own flax seeds in a coffee grinder, ensure it is extra fine to create a smooth texture. At times I have replaced the flax seeds with ground chia seeds for variety.
