Golden Flax

We are always hearing about the benefits of eating flax because of it's Omega 3's. Other foods which include those essential Omega3 fatty acids are fish, especially Salmon, but those of us with Vegan tendencies need to eat Flax, Kiwis, hemp, flax and pumpkin seeds and oils, walnuts and leafy green vegetables... Omega 3's can be found in many plant foods.
This is one of our favorite breakfast cereals. It is made with whole grain wheat and toasted flax, one variety comes with dried Berries.

We toasted some flax seeds to add to cereal so we could make our own version of Uncle Sam's.

1. Set the oven to 350 degrees, spread your flax evenly onto a baking sheet.

2. Bake 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Let cool and store in a jar.
