Like many people these days my husband too is taking fitness, good health and weight loss very seriously. He follows a regime which revolves around working out daily at a gym with a personal trainer and following a regimented diet plan. Part of his plan included adding a daily spoonful of flaxseed to his meals.
Never having heard of these seeds, I scoured the local stores for flaxseed and most of the shop keepers and even the chemists had no clue as to what I was referring to. I searched it on Google to find out that they are called ‘alsi’ in Urdu and made a trek to the shops again, yet was still in for disappointment. Finally, at a supermarket in the vicinity I hit the jackpot. They had packaged flaxseed.
