Flaxseed

Call them flax, flaxseed, or even linseed — Just one hundred grams of ground flaxseed provides you with about 534 calories, 41 grams of fat, 28 grams of fiber, and 20 grams of protein.

More than half of the fats in flaxseed are healthy omega-3s. Put some in your smoothies to power your workouts and your energetic weekend ahead!
