Add flax to your baking

Flaxseed is high in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and phytochemicals. It may help reduce total cholesterol and LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels, which may reduce your heart disease risk. You can buy flaxseed at your local grocery or health food store. Add a spoonful of ground flaxseed to cookies, muffins and other baked goods.
