Tell you a secret...fiber is the key to you keeping your blood sugar under control!

That's right – fiber! And not eating enough fiber is likely a huge part of the reason why you have Prediabetes and Insulin Resistance!

So you need to eat more fiber.

And one of the best forms of fiber is flax seed meal.

Flax Meal

Flax seed meal is also super low in carbs AND flax has been proven to:

  • Lower Blood Sugar
  • Lower A1C
  • Lower Bad Cholesterol
  • Increase Good Cholesterol
  • Lower Blood Fats
"Supplementation with FS [flax seed meal] reduced fasting blood glucose by 19.7% and glycated hemoglobin by 15.6%. A favorable reduction in total cholesterol (14.3%), triglycerides (17.5%), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (21.8%), and apolipoprotein B and an increase in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (11.9%) were also noticed."

Ladies! It sounds like Flax Meal needs to be on your daily menu!

So let's make some Fibery Carrot Flax Muffins!

In the Healthy U Group we encourage each other to eat better...

Directions: Mix the dry ingredients with a whisk. Mix the wet separately, again with a whisk. Combine and whisk together.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Grind Your Own Flax Meal To Avoid Rancidity

Flax seed meal can go rancid quite quickly. The easiest way to avoid this is to grind your own flax seed meal and then store your flax seed meal in the freezer!

NOTE: If your baked flax seed creations taste fishy, your flax seed meal is rancid or you overcooked your flax creations (which makes the flax meal oxidize, and that means rancid flax – SO DO NOT EAT IT!)

To avoid this issue…I grind my own golden flax seed meal with my Vitamix blender (it only takes about 30 seconds).

You can also grind flax seeds in a Spice and Nut Grinder.

Remember to store your flax seed meal in the freezer!

Or if you’re not quite ready to grind your own flax, buy quality Flax Meal like Bob’s Red Mill.
