Fun facts

Health benefits of flax seeds: * If you are a vegetarian or do not eat fish, flax seed can be your best source of omega-3 fats. They are a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), mainly vegetable omega-3 fatty acids. ALA is one of the two essential fatty acids you need to get from the food you eat because your body does not produce them. * Lignans are plant compounds with antioxidant and estrogenic properties, both of which can help reduce the risk of cancer and improve health. Interestingly, flax seeds contain up to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods. Observational studies show that people who eat flax seed have a lower risk of breast cancer, especially in postmenopausal women. * Only one tablespoon of flax seeds contains 3 grams of fiber, which is 8-12% of the recommended daily intake of men and women, respectively. In addition, flax seeds contain two types of fiber: soluble (20-40%) and insoluble (60-80%). This fiber duo is digested by bacteria in the colon, collects feces and results in more regular bowel movements. On the one hand, soluble fiber increases the consistency of your intestines and slows down your digestion. It has been shown to help regulate blood sugar and lower cholesterol * Another health benefit of flax seeds is their ability to lower cholesterol. In one study in people with high cholesterol, three tablespoons (30 grams) of flax seed powder a day reduced total cholesterol by 17% and "bad" LDL cholesterol by almost 20% for three months. * Flax seed is an excellent source of plant protein and there is a growing interest in flax seed protein and its health benefits. Flax seed protein is rich in the amino acids arginine, aspartic acid and glutamic acid. * Type II diabetes is a major health problem worldwide. It is characterized by high blood sugar levels due to the body's inability or secretion to secrete insulin. According to some studies, people with type 2 diabetes who have added 10 to 20 grams of flax seed powder to their daily diet for at least one month have a reduced blood sugar level of 8 to 20%.

Recipe 6 pieces Ingredients: pizza dough 200 g of linseed 160-180 ml of water 1 teaspoon salt pizza toppings 200 g of tomato paste 150 g of mushrooms 1 onion 1 tomato 1 tablespoon lemon pepper Vegan homemade cheese 2 handfuls of almonds 2 tablespoons seasoning yeast 1 tablespoon vegetable mayonnaise Preparation: To make vegan cheese, you need to put the almonds for up to 8 hours. If you can't wait that long, cook the almonds for 5 minutes. Then place the almonds in a blender with the yeast and mayonnaise. If the blender can't crush the almonds well, add a few tablespoons of water to get a creamy mass. Set the vegan cheese aside.

Take a blender and place the flax seeds in it. (It is easier to crush flax seed in larger quantities.) Puree the flax seeds until you have a flour-like mass. This will take a few minutes.

Place the linseed flour in a bowl. Add salt to the flour and mix. Then pour small amounts of room temperature water into the flour. The dough should not be too watery, but it should also not be too dry. When the flour has become a beautiful collapsible dough, mix it and set it aside for a while.

Preheat oven to 180°C degrees. At the same time, place the dough on baking paper and place another baking paper on top of the dough. Roll the dough flat with a roll. Then take a large pot and cut a circle into the dough with its edges. Place the bottom of the pizza in the oven for 30-45 minutes.

At the same time chopped onions and mushrooms. Heat a pan and add the onion to the pan. Brown the onion for 2 minutes and then add the mushrooms. Pour a little water into the pan so that the onion does not stick to the pan. Fry the mushrooms for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Slice the tomato.

When the bottom has become hard, try turning it gently. Pour the tomato paste over the pizza base. Spread tomato paste with a spoon.

Place the tomato slices on top of the tomato paste. Shake the tomatoes over the lemon pepper. Then pour over the fried onions and mushrooms. Stir in the vegan cheese and pour it on the pizza last. Put the pizza in the oven for another 20 minutes. Take the pizza out of the oven and let it cool for 5-10 minutes. Then cut into six pieces. If desired, garnish with beans. Enjoy with family or friends. Bon Appetit! PS! This pizza is really nutritious!
