    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.
