A small brown or golden seed that comes from a crop grown in cooler climates, flax, also known as linseed, is both a food and textile crop. One of the biggest benefits to eating flax is the amount of lignans available per serving. Lignans are antioxidants that can actually help balance hormones, and may help fight against hormone-related cancers such as breast cancer, ovarian cancer and prostate cancer. Add some more antioxidants from acai berry powder and blueberries, and you have a low calorie, immune-boosting powerhouse breakfast.
