Using flax on a low-carb diet

Flax has a great nutritional profile, being low in carbs and high in protein and fibre. This makes it a useful low-carb baking and cooking ingredient.

Most recipes call for ground flax. This product is sold unground, as it stores better in this state. You can grind the required amount just before cooking using a food processor or a coffee grinder.

Flax works well in low-carb baking recipes such as bread and muffins (on its own or mixed with almond flour for better flavour), sprinkled on top of main meals, or mixed in with your prtoien shake.

Atkins Diet and Flax

Dr Atkins mentions flax in his original book as a fibre supplement, to ensure healthy digestion. (Robert C Atkins (27 May 2009). Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution. Ebury Publishing. p. 76. ISBN 978-1-4070-2768-5)
