Flax Oil… You may have heard of it, but do you use it?
After seeing a few bloggers use Flax oil, it really got Court and I thinking. What are the benefits? How do you use it…in shakes,oats,straight up? Well with little research here is what we have found out about the benefits portion:
- Lower cholesterol, protect against heart disease and control high blood pressure
- Control constipation, haemorrhoids, diverticular disorders and gallstones
- Treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, sunburn and rosacea
- Promote healthy hair and nails
- Minimize nerve damage that causes numbness and tingling as well as other disorders
- Reduce cancer risk and guard against the effects of ageing:
- Treat menopausal symptoms, menstrual cramps, female infertility and endometriosis
That is just some basic stuff, but if you do use Flax-Oil, please fill us in on the benefits you have achieved, and your favorite way to use it.
Today we had a 5 AM workout Wake-up call with Ashley in the basement completing HIIT 15, and Tone 3o. We’ve done the HIIT 15 many times now, and it still is way harder than the longer videos. We were all so sweaty, flushed, and breathing heavy. That class consists of 3 circuits which you repeat for 3 times each, and there is about a 30 second rest between each round. Today we all had work at 8, and we ended up finishing our workout at promptly 5:55 AM. With heavy feeling weak legs after that intense workout, we all slowly made our way upstairs to the kitchen for some Breakfast. Lets just call this mornings oat Combo Amazing Chocolate Strawberry oats!
In the mix:
1/2 cup oats
1 tsp flaxseed
1 scoop Chocolate Amazing meal
1/2 EAS Light Vanilla protein shake
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup strawberries
2 tbs egg whites
Top with: Justin’s Honey Peanut Butter
MMM, totally lovin’ this Justin’s PB.
Court and I really liked that Egg Salad wrap that we ate during Inferno week, so we recreated it for lunch today. We used Flat-out wraps, and paired some juicy grapes with it 🙂
You know you want to make this, lol so here ya go. Thank you Courtney and Whitney… Right? lol
Here’s what the results will look like
After a long 8 hour shift, we are finally home sitting down, and enjoying some leftover pizza from last night. The weather is real nice out, so lately most our meals have been eaten out on the deck under the cazibo. (Fyi, i do not know how to spell that. lol)
