If I could have one food that I believe everyone should be on, it's Flaxseed.
I'm not a fan of saying SUPERFOOD because it implies that you can just eat this one food and you're cured of whatever the food helps with. This is true when the body is not inflamed or stressed.
Here's an analogy to help you understand:
If you're tossing a pebble into stormy water you won't see the ripples because the water is too unstable. Toss a pebble into a calm body of water and you'll see the ripple effects.
This is the same way the body responds to many of these foods. If you don't FEEL a difference incorporating this amazing food into your meals, KEEP GOING! You just haven't covered all the inflammation inside of you yet. Keep adding in more tools. The more anti-inflammatory and antioxidant containing foods you add in, the "calmer" the body.
With that said, let's talk about WHY I'm obsessed with this little seed and why you should be too!
