Okay, so I finally ground up the flax seed in the blender and now I look at it thinking, what do I do with it now? :LOL So, I'd love some ideas (so far, all I can think of is mix 1-2 TBSP in a bunch of honey and eat it up! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: I'd love some fun and tasty ways to get it into our bodies.

I use my ground flax seed in homemade bread. My son likes his topped with a little cheese. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
I've also used it in homemade pancakes, muffins, basically wherever a recipe calls for flour. I usually use half flour, half flaxseed. HTH!

Don't forget to add it to smoothies. Your kids won't know the difference. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">

Thanks for the suggestions! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> One other question - can ground flax seed go bad? I've heard the flax seed oil can get rancid quickly, but haven't read anything about the ground flax seed. Does it have a shelf life before you wouldn't want to use it?

I'm not sure for how long but I know it lasts a long time in the fridge. You will more than likely use it up before you have to worry about it going bad.
