I first heard about flaxseed a couple of year's ago. I read about it in some health magazine and learned about how great it is for your health and how easy it can be slipped into a ton of different recipes. I started using it on a regular basis and love it.
I happily agreed to try out eSutras Golden Organic Flax Seed.

Since these are whole seeds, I did as the company suggested and used a coffee grinder to grind up the seeds.
I ground up a little bit of the seeds at a time until I had done the entire container.
Then, I refilled the container with the freshly ground up seeds. It didn't all fit, so I put the rest in a Ziploc baggy and stuck that in the freezer to keep it fresh.
The reason I did what I did was because I love the container. I can simply shake a bit or get a spoonful of freshly ground flax seed whenever I need it.
What do I use flax seed in? The real question is what don't I use flax seed in.
You see, flax seed can be added into virtually any recipe. I use it in smoothies, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, ice cream, lasagna, meatloaf, in breading for fish or chicken, some soups, cookies, cakes, and more. Yup, I do this all the time. My family doesn't even know it unless I tell them because it doesn't change the taste of things much. It may add a little crunch to some things and help thicken other things up. It's also a wonderful source of fiber.
I love how healthy it is and it's easy enough to add into anyone's diet each day.
This product is perfect for people looking to make their recipes just a bit healthier.
