One word: Flaxseed. It's changing my world.

Remember My Big Fat Greek Wedding? How the guy used Windex to solve everything but world peace? That’s me with the Flaxseed thing. Yes, you heard it first. Diann Hunt is getting into health and nutrition.

It’s true. I sprinkle Flaxseed on everything: toast, meatloaf, vegetables, chocolate, ice cream. Everything.

And here’s the real clincher. It helps with hot flashes. Is that not amazing? Not only that but this little wonder seed is also great for—are you ready for this—facials. However, I don’t know if any scientific tests have been done on that one, so you might want to wait. If I start sprouting little things on my face, I’ll let you know. They are seeds, after all.

Need I point out that my protagonist is into flaxseed? Uses it for everything. She’s such a copy cat. I can’t do anything without her spying, picking and choosing for herself. She drives me crazy.

So, there you have it. Flaxseed. The wonder drug. The health food that makes chocolate good for me—well, that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

My dau. is into health stuff and has persuaded me to buy some flaxseed. I eat it when I'm visiting her. She recommends cold-milled organic GOLDEN flaxseed. I haven't gotten to the health food store, though.

Shall I get you started on coconut oil? Mix it up with some flax seed and some, um...chocolate, and you've practically got cooky dough! (Coconut oil is a solid at room temp, kind of the consistency of Crisco.) It also makes an excellent moisterizer, and mixed with flax seeds would have the added benefit of exfoliation.

I will check out your seeds, lady! (And no, this isn't Doug. It's Katy. I don't know how to switch the settings back....)

You get more benefit from the seeds if you grind them first.
The oil is also good on salads, etc.
Personally, I switched to Evening Primrose Oil instead. Easier.
And coconut oil is terrific! Love it!

Look for Bumble Bars. Flaxseed and chocolate in a bar almost like eating candy. I first found them in Montana at a coffee shop, but my local health food store has them.

As long as you don't start lecturing me on espresso and diet Pepsi, you can eat whatever you'd like. I won't bother you!

But look at it this way, if the cockroaches and rats are going to survive the Haulocaust, I ask you, what did they eat?

And here she thought I'd talk her into weird stuff when I started talking about health. She plunges head first into one of the last things people try. I'm so proud. LOL

So where are oyu getting it? And in what form? Actual seeds? Or is it powdered? If it's that good, I want some!

I love seeds. The bread I eat is nearly entirely seeds smushed together. It's called Genesis 1:29 bread.

Is this protag as drive-you-nuts as Maggie? Oh dear...I can see counseling time ahead.

Flaxseed oil helps me with my arthritis as well...keeps the old joints lubed:-)

I'm still praying for you, Diann!
