Flaxseed Blends + New Skinny Bitch Book
The Delivery: Linwoods ground organic flaxseeds and Skinny Bitch: Book of Vegan Swaps by Kim Barnouin
Staff Pick: Skinny Bitch: Book of Vegan Swaps
The DL: Stowed away in almost every vegan's kitchen pantry is ground flaxseeds—or at least it should be. Full of omega-3s and fiber, it's an easy way to get what your body needs. Flaxseeds even make a great egg substitute, perfect for the holiday season (want more great vegan baking tips? Our handy Baking Substitutions Guide makes it easy to veganize any dessert). And while you're busy baking up your grandmother's recipe for raspberry almond thumbprint cookies, why not enter the VegNews Holiday Cookie Contest? Entries must be submitted by this Saturday, December 10 at 5pm PT, so start baking!
