By early January, most of us are ready to part with the cookies and get back to a normal eating routine. We rounded up 10 of our favorite healthy flax recipes for some easy ideas to get your month started on a positive note. We’ve got everything from breakfast to snacks to dessert covered!
Blueberry Smoothie. Who says smoothies are only for summer? We love incorporating them as snacks and packing in extra fruits, vegetables and healthy fats.
Black Bean Burgers with Flaxseed. These vegan burgers use flax to bind them together. Make a double batch and freeze half for days when you’re pressed for time!
Classic Banana Muffins. Muffins make a great “grab-and-go” style breakfast for the whole family. Pair them with a hard-boiled egg or a dollop of peanut butter and some fruit for a balanced and tasty morning meal.
Carrot Cake Oatmeal. Cake for breakfast? Oh yes! This high-fiber oatmeal includes vegetables and flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
Creamy Flaxseed Pesto. Pro tip: make a batch of flavorful sauce at the beginning of the week and add it to everything to instantly elevate your meals. We love this creamy pesto and it’s so versatile!
Salmon Patties. Most of us aren’t consuming enough fish and incorporating canned salmon is a convenient, affordable way to include those omega-3 fats more often.
