Flax meal is great if you just want it for fiber. It looses it's omega 3's fairly soon after it's ground, ideally it should be eaten within 15 minutes of grinding. I buy the seed & grind in my coffee grinder so I know it's as healthy as possible. 1 tablespoon gives you about 2 tablespoons of ground flax.
I put it in cereal, crackers, breads, meatloaf & hamburgers. It's a good thickener if you don't mind the grit. I also saw that as an egg substitute you can use 1 teaspoon flax meal & 1 tablespoon of water, but haven't tried that yet.
