“I’ve found that it’s all about making good choices. Healthy eating is a choice I’m making for myself, and it helps me feel in control. These muffins with flaxseed are not only terrific tasting, they are good for me.” Cindy L.
A Note from Dr. B.:
Flaxseed is a fairly new discovery in the prevention of heart disease. Though flaxseed does contain a high amount of fat, it has the heart-protective benefits of lowering cholesterol and triglycerides. Omega-3 abounds in this hearty, grainy muffin, along with the goodness of whole-grain oats.
