Have you tried chia seeds? They seem to be the new fashion among vegans around here in the Cleveland area. The health food stores are now promoting them big-time.
I haven't tried them yet, but I'd like to. I've heard that they're actually tasty.
For now I have switched from the capsules to actual milled flax seed. I've been putting it in my breakfast, which lately has been cold fruit soup made with a soy yogurt base. My husband is pretty convinced that I'm crazy.
I read that flax oil is sometimes rancid. The capsules would disguise this, however the straight oil could make you sick. I did buy rancid oil once, before I knew to watch out for it, and it did make me sick. It has to be kept in that dark bottle and be refrigerated.
Did you know that flax seeds (you can buy regular milled ones that can stay on the shelf and not the refrigerated ones) can be used in some recipes instead of oil? I just found this out. I'm going to try it.
