Flax Seed for Health

The flax seed is often overlooked

In our quest for healthy eating

Don’t ignore this delightful little seed

Smaller than a grain of rice

Loaded with things that you need

 

This powerful source of omega 3s

To aid in the prevention of cancer

And has other phytochemical compounds

That will help to keep you healthy

 

Sprinkled on the morning toast

Or into a small amount of water

Onto your salad or any place you please

They won’t overpower the other food

 

A tablespoon full or two each day

Will help insure that you get

Your nutrients each in a nice way

Please don’t delay, do it today

 

Can be added to baked goods or chewed raw

Cooked like an interesting porridge

With its nutty flavor and cheap price

 

Flax seed oil is at the health food store

But it is rather expensive for my taste

A pint will feed me about a month

And costs as much as four packs of cigarettes

 

A pound of flax seeds costs a buck or two

At my favorite bulk food store

 

A fifteen dollar coffee grinder

From my local grocery

Does a nice job

In ten to twenty seconds

 

A food processor will do the job

In no time flat

Depending upon your tastes

And where you’re putting them at

 

Grind them into pieces

Lest they pass through

Undigested

And do you no good
