Flaxseed for breakfast?

Flaxseed is high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Adding flaxseed to your diet may help reduce your total cholesterol and LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels. Add a spoonful of ground flaxseed, available at grocery stores and health food stores, to breakfast cereal or bake it into muffins.
