Could adding just one spoonful of flax or sesame seeds to your morning oatmeal or cup of yogurt crush cravings and stop you from gaining weight? It may sound too good to be true, but it's actually a fact. Along with the benefits of superfoods like chia seeds and protein-powered walnuts, flax and sesame seeds can add weight regulating lignans to your breakfast. The Harvard School of Public Health conducted a study of 1,000 women. The researchers  monitored the presence of lignans in the bodies of participants over 10 years. The higher level of lignans in the body, the less weight the women put on. There is not a clear reason why lignans are so good at preventing the packing on of poundage. More data must be acquired on that topic, but what is known is that they work and are present in flax and sesame seeds. Plus, sesame seeds and flax seeds are very versatile. Try ground flax in a berry or green smoothie. You can sprinkle it over Greek yogurt, ice cream and apple sauce. Try using flax seed oil as a salad dressing. Sesame seeds can be roasted, crushed and used as as salad topping. What are your thoughts? Do you get enough flax and sesame seeds each day?
