Flaxseed: The #1 Source of Lignans by Rachel Beller, MS RDN

Tags: , , ,

Looking to spice up your breakfast routine and upgrade your cancer fighting routine? Add one of my top Difference Makers from the  Beller Method™: Flaxseeds.

Did you know that flaxseeds are the #1 dietary source of lignans..they may have up to 15 times more lignans compared to other seeds! This makes them a major breast cancer superfood. Lignans are super potent phytoestrogens that have been shown to have potential in reducing breast cancer tumor growth and spread. Lignans may also work together with tamoxifen to inhibit breast cancer growth! 

A study published in the Clinical Cancer Research Journal showed that regular intake of flaxseeds can make a significant difference in your breast cancer fight or preventative strategy. Researchers gave a group of women with breast cancer a muffin made with about 2 tablespoons of flaxseed every day for 1 month. They found that women who ate the flaxseed muffins had significantly lower tumor cell growth compared to women who ate a placebo muffin (no flaxseed). That’s one of the reasons why the Beller Method™ includes daily fiber boosters like flaxseed!

Rachel’s Power Tips

Aim for 1-2 tablespoons of flaxseed per day.  If you can find them, go for sprouted flaxseeds, as sprouting improves the digestibility and enhances nutrient absorption. I also recommend purchasing pre-ground flaxseeds that are cold-pressed with opaque (not clear) airtight packaging to reduce any oxidation.

Store in the back of your refrigerator for a max of 4-6 months for optimal nutrient content! 

Add to your smoothies, oatmeal, and baked goods!

Bonus Feature: Flaxseeds are a fiber booster that can nourish your gut microbiome which can help with estrogen balance.

Spiced Up Flax Breakfast Cookies 

  • 2 Banana (mashed)
  • 1 cup Rolled Oats (sprouted preferred)
  • 4 tbsps ground flaxseed
  • 3/4 tsp Cinnapeel Spicer (or Morning Boost Nutrition Blend)
  • 2 tsps Avocado Oil (or walnut oil — optional)
  • 1 tbsp Prebiotic Fiber Powder (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork (or a potato masher)and add the oats, flax, pre-biotic fiber booster blend, power spice blend of choice and oil. Mix until well combined.
  3. Using your hands, create 4 patties and place them on the parchment paper (they will be very moist). Flatten slightly with your hands and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. Remove cookies and let cool on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes. They even taste better next day straight out of refrigerator. They make a great on-the go breakfast or afternoon snack. Enjoy!
