I like the golden flax better than the darker, as someone else already said. It is kind of wheat-germy/nutty tasting. I put it in just about everything too. It's very easy to integrate into your diet!

I also second the chia seeds. They are an excellent source of omegas and will expand, which makes them filling. I put them on salads and I make chia pudding out of 1 1/2 cups of thawed frozen fruit and 2 tbsp of chia. Let that set in the fridge, and it's really yummy.

Too funny, the same night I did the chicken I also did zucchini sticks with the cornflakes, flax meal and parmesan. They were so good.
You tell him! Unless he's doing the cooking he can't do the complaining;)

I had no idea such a thing exsisted!!!! Im going to check that out! I like the corn flakes because it comes out so much crispier then breadcrumbs. BF has actually been complaining about the breadcrumbs (so are you going to cook? no? then sush!)
Thanks for letting me know about that. I love breading zucchini with parmesan too. Sooooo yummy!

Corn flakes are my favorite thing to use for breading but there is too much sugar and other stuff in there for me.
Hungry Girl uses Fibre1 cereal which I haven't looked at before.

This weekend I mixed flax meal with crushed corn flakes to coat chicken and it was good.

The stuff I have is very fine so I would recommend a bit of bread crumbs with it. I will add in chili powder or oregano to give it some flavor.

I put it in oatmeal and shakes, turkey burgers, meatballs, and I even added it to a bowl of chili once.

OFFDREA- I know you said you use it with or without breadcrumbs and I'm just wondering how it tastes as breading, is it kid friendly? Does it crisp up nicely when baked? What's your recipe?
Thanks everyone for sharing your ideas!

I use it instead of or with breadcrumbs as a binder for salmon or tuna patties and as a breading for chicken or zucchini.

i just added ground flax to diet as well! One way I've tried it is in a smoothie -- I couldn't taste anything different but it did change the texture a little. I've also added it to my homemade bread and that went over well. I feel powerful adding it to foods :)

The golden flax has a nice teaste. Reminds of wheat germ (which I love and can no longer eat). The brown fax is not as tasty.
You can sprinkle on yourt, cereal, add to protein bars, smoothies, bread, cakes, pudding too. ANything really.

I eat 2 tbs a day and throw it in wherever I can- oats, yogurt, protein smoothie, salad (fruit or green). I also eat 1-2 tbs of chia seed daily and use it in the same ways.
Good luck and enjoy!

I put ground flaxseed in just about everything. smoothies, oatmeal, cream of wheat, bread making, even in ground meat like meatloaf and meat balls for my family! I've never really tasted it or noticed a different flavor to my food, making it pretty neutral. I use it in moderation and don't go overboard on it.

I add a couple of tablespoons to my cereal every morning...I don't think it has a taste at all...maybe a bit of texture, but it doesn't affect my enjoyment at all :-)

I was told to be sure to keep it refrigerated or in the freezer ideally in an airtight container and it will keep longer..fyi.

Enjoy!
