Soak 2 Tb of seeds in 1/2 cup of water for a minimum of 10 minutes or up to overnight.

Add to a smoothie or drink it down straight.

You will find flax seeds in bulk at your local coop or at the grocery packaged as Bob's Red Mill.

Flax provides essential good oils and is a much needed ingredient in an anti-inflammatory lifestyle

    Test out the benefits of hemp seed! I was a big fan of flax before I discovered these tasty, high protein, high in omega-3, nutty seeds.

    If you put 1/3 c ground flax seed into 1 cup cold water and let set you will have a great egg substitute. 1/4 c mix equals 1 egg.

You can also use ground flax seed as a breading on fish or chicken.
