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!

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 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 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 am thinking about maybe adding ground flaxseed into my diet. i am wondering though what can i add into?can i add into breads? also what does it taste like? because i have never seen it outside of google. any help would be appreciated
