How To Make Flax Seeds A Part of Your Diet With so many statistics proving the inherent health values of flaxseed, everyone should make flaxseed a part of their daily diet. It is easy. Sprinkle 1 to 2 tablespoons of flaxseed a day on your cereal, salad, or yogurt. You can also add it to your morning smoothie. Drop two tablespoons into your yogurt and fruit based morning breakfast before blending it all together. If you don't like it whole, you can grind it in your blender or food processor and keep refrigerated so it is easy to use.
