Everyone knows that linaza or ground flax seed is one of the healthiest foods that contain high amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids, fibers, and phytochemicals. No one can dispute the fact that this wonder seed can provide amazing nutritive benefits that can make your body healthier. So it makes perfect sense to include flaxseeds in your daily diet. In fact, experts believe that an average adult needs to eat at least 1.6 grams of this seed in order to get the optimum value of its essential fatty acids. There are many ways how you can incorporate flaxseeds in your diet. Here are some tips that you may find helpful.
First, ground flax seed can be eaten raw. You can buy a package online or in a local grocery or health food shop. If you prefer to eat whole seeds, then it is important to thoroughly chew them to make sure that you can get all the benefits of Omega 3 and dietary fiber. Your body does not have the natural ability to digest whole seeds. The undigested grains therefore will simply be wasted. This type of food has a distinct nutty and earthy flavor. The taste is pleasant so you will not have any problem chewing it. After munching the seeds, you should drink at least 8 ounces of water to release the dietary fibers. Water expands the seeds and transforms them into a slightly gelatinous mass.
If you do not want to chew a tablespoon of ground flax seed, then you can choose to buy a packet of ground linaza from an online health shop. It is easier to incorporate flaxseeds in your diet if they are already in powdered form. But keep in mind the ground seeds should be stored in an airtight container. It only takes around 15 to 20 minutes of direct air exposure to oxidize the linseed powder. Once oxidization sets in, the nutritive value of this food will start to diminish substantially. To make things easier for you, it is best to mix the ground linseed to your morning cereals or shake. Take one tablespoon from the packet and incorporate the almost powdery seeds to your power breakfast meals.
Ground flax seed is known for its low carbohydrate property but it is loaded with minerals, fibers, and antioxidants. You can prepare a nutritious spread or filling for your bread by mixing one tablespoon of linaza to your low fat mayonnaise or mustard. You can use this spread for your sandwiches and power snacks. You can also mix ground linseed or flax to your daily yogurt snack. To make your meals or snacks more exciting and delectable, you can use the whole packet of ground linaza to bake cookies, breads, and muffins. In fact, the seeds will add a pleasant nutty flavor to your baked goodies. They also improve the texture of breads and muffins thus making them more delicious.
There are still other ways how to incorporate ground flax seed to your daily diet. With just a bit of imagination, you can try different recipes, mixtures, and combinations. By using flaxseeds, you can make your meals and snacks more delicious and healthier.

Suffocated by Dodder
Image by wallygrom Cuscuta (dodder) is a genus of about 100–170 species of yellow, orange, or red (rarely green) parasitic plants. Formerly treated as the only genus in the family Cuscutaceae, it now is accepted as belonging in the morning glory family, Convolvulaceae, on the basis of the work of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group. The genus is found throughout the temperate and tropical regions of the world, with the greatest species diversity in subtropical and tropical regions; the genus becomes rare in cool temperate climates, with only four species native to northern Europe. Folk names include devil's guts, devil's hair, devil's ringlet, goldthread, hailweed, hairweed, hellbine, love vine, pull-down, strangleweed, angel hair, and witch's hair. Dodder can be identified by its thin stems appearing leafless, with the leaves reduced to minute scales. In these respects it closely resembles the similarly parasitic, but unrelated genus Cassytha. From mid-summer to early autumn, the vines can produce small fruit that take the same color as the vine, and are approximately the size of a common pea. It has very low levels of chlorophyll; some species such as Cuscuta reflexa can photosynthesize slightly, while others such as C. europaea are entirely dependent on the host plants for nutrition. Dodder flowers range in colour from white to pink to yellow to cream. Some flower in the early summer, others later, depending on the species. The seeds are minute and produced in large quantities. They have a hard coating, and typically can survive in the soil for 5–10 years, sometimes longer. Dodder seeds sprout at or near the surface of the soil. Although dodder germination can occur without a host, it has to reach a green plant quickly and is adapted to grow towards the nearby plants by following chemosensory clues. If a plant is not reached within 5 to 10 days of germination, the dodder seedling will die. Before a host plant is reached, the dodder, as other plants, relies on food reserves in the embryo; the cotyledons, though present, are vestigial. After a dodder attaches itself to a plant, it wraps itself around it. If the host contains food beneficial to dodder, the dodder produces haustoria that insert themselves into the vascular system of the host. The original root of the dodder in the soil then dies. The dodder can grow and attach itself to multiple plants. In tropical areas it can grow more or less continuously, and may reach high into the canopy of shrubs and trees; in temperate regions it is an annual plant and is restricted to relatively low vegetation that can be reached by new seedlings each spring. Dodder is parasitic on a very wide variety of plants, including a number of agricultural and horticultural crop species, such as alfalfa, lespedeza, flax, clover, potatoes, chrysanthemum, dahlia, helenium, trumpet vine, ivy and petunias, among others. Dodder ranges in severity based on its species and the species of the host, the time of attack, and whether any viruses are also present in the host plant. By debilitating the host plant, dodder decreases the ability of plants to resist viral diseases, and dodder can also spread plant diseases from one host to another if it is attached to more than one plant. This is of economical concern in agricultural systems, where an annual drop of 10% yield can be devastating. There has been an emphasis on dodder vine control in order to manage plant diseases in the field. A report published in Science in 2006 demonstrated that dodder use airborne volatile organic compound cues to locate their host plants. Seedlings of Cuscuta pentagona exhibit positive growth responses to volatiles released by tomato and other species of host plants. When given a choice between volatiles released by the preferred host tomato and the non-host wheat, the parasite grew toward the former. Further experiments demonstrated attraction to a number of individual compounds released by host plants and repellance by one compound released by wheat. These results do not rule out the possibility that other cues, such as light, may also play a role in host location.
