    aren't the seeds healthier than the oil? i read that somewhere :dunno:

    although right now i feel that i'm going to get some because this shit is too nasty. does it have the same fiber/fats?

    Put in in anything... Burger patties, muffins, pancakes, eggs, shakes (vanilla+cinnamon+flaxmeal is pretty good), etc. It goes in almost anything involving "mixing". In almost any recipe I replace half of the flour with flaxmeal.

    You shouldn't buy them already grounded. When grounded, they tend to oxydize fast and they kinda lose their use.
    Put it in eggs or try to find a hot cereal recipe that uses flaxmeal, it's nice when you miss oats.

    I buy flaxseeds and grind them right before i use them. If they're already grinded they might be rancid.

    ahh, makes sense.

    my wife is on the south beach diet and made some great muffins with flax seed in them. had apple in there too. Looked kinda funky with the flax seeds, but they tasted :yum:


    this had to have been it:
