yogurt with berries and ground flax

Happy Friday! What are you getting into this weekend? I’m out of town, enjoying time with family and taking a little break from the machines. I have some great guest posts coming up for you next week.

If you want a little weekend reading and feel like playing with some new ingredients, you can check out my recent Azumio post about some different ways to enjoy flax. It’s one of my favorite foods, which I use almost every day. Aside from  being a delicious way to add fiber, texture, and flavor, flax is a rich source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids.

Omega-3s are something that’s a bit tricky to get on a plant-based diet, and is a deficiency to watch out for, especially in kids. I recently interviewed board-certified pediatric dietitian Laura Gibofsky, MS, RD, CSP, CDN, about some of the nutrients to pay extra attention to for kids on plant-based diets.

Have a great weekend!
