Yes, a smoothie containing banana is a healthy smoothie! Add the antioxidants, Omega-3s and additional fiber in the flaxseeds and you have a super-healthy smoothie. This one is from the Nutritioulicious website and you’ll find the recipe details at the end of the post.
In her article at the Nutritioulicious website, Rosemary Squires tells of the many health benefits of flaxseeds.
I’ll pick up a couple of points from the article: Flaxseeds are readily available; Buy them as whole seeds, because they keep better that way, and grind them in a mini processor or coffee grinder as you want to use them, because the nutrients in ground flaxseed are more available to the body and easier to digest.
Rosemary writes that a study …
… from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that 2-6 tablespoons of flaxseeds per day can lower blood cholesterol up to 18 percent! If that seems like too much to consume, aim for 1 to 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed daily.
