Flaxseed

Not only does flaxseed help lower cholesterol and possibly reduce the risk of heart attack, but it’s also a rich source of lignan, an antioxidant that may protect against certain cancers. Add ground flaxseed to baked goods for a nutty flavor or sprinkle it on top of your favorite cereal. It’s also delicious when blended with yogurt and fresh fruit for a tasty smoothie.
