Oh, Heyyyy Bee Pollen & Flaxseed

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger and wellness blogger with skinny tips and tricks on how to lose weight.

It’s rare for my day to begin without bee pollen & flaxseed. I sprinkle it in smoothies, cereal, & oatmeal all the time. This morning my breakfast consisted of a few scoops of Ezekiel cereal, pumpkin spice, rice milk, Truvia, blueberries, refrigerated bee pollen, & flaxseed. Even though there are plenty of healthy breakfast options, they aren’t always time efficient. Cold cereal is convenient for when I am running late low on time & famished.

* Quick skinny tip: These Antropologie tiny bowls are amazing when it comes to portion control. There’s no need to pour your AM cereal into a horse trough; plan ahead, buy smaller dishes.

Flaxseed Benefits:

+ High in B Vitamins.

+ Eliminates bloat.

+ Promotes proper function of the intestines [ ew!, but necessary ].

+ Note: it’s better for the flaxseeds to be ground for nutrients, however regular flaxseed taste better – I use both.

Bee Pollen Benefits: 

+ Contains vitamins, minerals, & proteins.

+ All of the essential amino acids are present in bee pollen [ <<<< so important ].

+ Increases energy & builds the immune system.

+ Note: the refrigerated brands are best.

Um…amazing, much?!

    I bought whole flax seed on accident. If I ground that, will I still get the nutrients from it?

      Yes, you’re all good. They both will work. The nutrients are just more available in the in ground kind.

    You do not need to buy flax seed ground up already. Your teeth do the work when you chew :) I’m going to add bee pollen for sure now! Thanks!

      I buy it at local health food stores. I love the kind that is refrigerated (most kinds should be kept in cool areas). : ))) xo

    Can you mix flaxseed, bee pollen, and chia seeds together in smoothies and shakes?
