Great sources of omega 3 fatty acids (ie very heart and brain healthy fats).

Oil is good on salads, etc. but don't cook with it. I also like to put a Tbsp in my smoothies.

Ground seeds taste very nutty and are great on yogurt, salads, etc. I also put them in my smoothies. You have to grind the seeds, though, otherwise they'll pass right through you undigested. A coffee grinder (that you don't use for coffee!) works great for this; just grind what you need because ground seeds will go rancid very quickly.

Here are some recipes I found on the web:

I eat ground flax seed on my toast every morning. And now my ds does too! He loves it! (thankfully, he hasn't experienced jelly on toast!!!)

How do you get the flaxseed to stick to toast? Doesn't it fall off?

Good question! We either spread applesauce or spectrum spread on the toast before applying the ground flax seed!
