Flax seeds?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I'm breastfeeding and trying to eat healthier foods so am experimenting with new ingredients. I bought some flax seeds (whole) today but am not sure what to do with them. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help!

Grind them or you won't get any nutrients, they'll just pass on through. I put them in my morning green smoothie, sprinkle them on kids' cereal, put them in baked goods. I'm still relatively new to them myself so I haven't done more than that. Yet.

I put them into smoothies or mash them a little with a mortar and pestle and slip them into meatballs and meatloaf.

on oatmeal

in nut bars/granola

1/4c added to muffin batter (-mines 1/4c flour)

in breading (along with bread crumbs)

meatloaf mixture

certain homemade bread

 

all ground - we use golden (yellow) and brown ground together in a coffee grinder- I only grind what I need at the time and what is used within a week on oatmeal 

 

you don't want to let them sit ground because of the oils
