GROUND SEED MEALS
The term “meal” is generally used to describe any grain, legume, nut or seed that’s been ground into a powdery substance. Just as cornmeal is ground corn, flaxseed meal is simply ground flaxseed. A product labeled “whole ground flaxseed meal” could just as accurately be called “ground flaxseed” or “flaxseed meal.”
Flaxseed, also known as linseed, is a leading source of plant-derived omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fiber. Grinding the glossy brown seeds into fine particles is what unlocks their nutritional benefits, as whole flaxseeds are so small they usually pass through the intestinal tract undigested. Flaxseed is fantastic to use to keep yourself regulated. No need to purchase pharmacy products for constipation. This is natures answer! Any ground flaxseed you don’t plan to use soon should be placed in an air-tight container and kept in the freezer, where it usually lasts for about six months.
PUMPKIN SEED MEAL
Pumpkin seeds have a well-earned reputation as a tasty, easy-to-make snack, but they also pack plentiful health benefits; these crunchy seeds feature significant amounts of magnesium, zinc, omega-3s, antioxidants, fiber and, of course, protein. As an alternative to the usual suspects of whey and soy protein, pumpkin seed protein powder offers a cost-effective homemade alternative that lends itself to smoothies and baked goods alike.
CHIA SEED MEAL
Use for protein shakes and smoothies. Rich in Omega-3 and Fiber, Chia seeds are one of the best known sources of essential fatty acids, with nearly two-thirds being comprised of Omega-3 as ALA. They are also an excellent source of Omega-6, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, dietary fiber, and protein. This Chia Seed meal can make a nutritious addition to protein shakes, cereals, salads, yogurts, and more.
