Tropical Traditions Review & Giveaway: Flaxseed



You all know I love Tropical Traditions by now. I'm reviewed Coconut Oil, Natural Honey, Laundry detergent, and NOW Organic Whole Golden Flaxseed so by now I'm very used and accustomed to the way Tropical Traditions works and runs. I let them know what I'd like and within 3-4 days I have my item in my hands!

We use Flaxseed and Wheat Germ in our cereals and pancakes and smoothies etc. We use them both ALL THE TIME! So I took half this bag and ground it up and put it in a ziploc baggie in the fridge. The second half I left whole in this resealable bag and it's in the fridge. We like to add whole to our cereals and some other stuff, but use the ground for most things. I'll probably grind more up eventually, but for now half works. 

So we do use it in just about everything. Flaxseed is a wonderful product. It has Omega3 in it and is very rich in it actually. It's also great to help you stay 'regular' and it helps clean out your system. It's great to use daily. We try and get a little bit in each and every day, but it doesn't always happen. If I skip 2 days without it, I start to notice. I feel more tired with less energy and I just feel down. I don't know if it's all the flaxseed, but I'm correlated the 2 to be connected!

This Flaxseed tastes no different than others, but I love that it's Organic! I can't find organic flaxseed in any of my stores. 

Price: $10.30 for a 1lb bag. It was originally $11.99. This is a decent price. We get a 10oz bag from our store for around $5. So this is actually very competitive.

Overall: ***** Love it. Tastes the same (no taste really), does the same job and it's ORGANIC!

There's so much to love at Tropical Traditions. One of my favorite items is the Organic Canadian Raw Honey - it is so good. Yes, I use flaxseed - it's so healthy. We use it as an egg substitute in baking and I love to put into hot cereal.
