How to Take My Damned Flaxeed

Jim Leff | | Dec 9, 2004 07:06 PM

I hold in my hand a packet of FiPro Flax, specially milled cold-milled certificed organic flaxseed, from a very legitimate-sounding company called "Health from the Sun". Four tablespoons of FiProFLAX supplies almost as much oil as one tablespoon of flax oil, plus fiber, protein, and lignans. God, it's been ages since I replenished my lignans.

This was intended to be my first step toward a healthy tomorrow. However, the problem is I have no idea whatsoever of what to do with this stuff. And I'm afraid to open up this space age-looking vacuum pack, lest it turn into a ticking time bomb of freshness, threatening to decimate my substantial investment.

I'm posting here rather than on General Topics, 'cuz I don't want to discuss the benifits of flaxseed, which I've resolved to believe in blythe regardless of any sensical argument. I want to know what to do with the stuff.

Oh, bear in mind that I don't really cook. I do eat a lot of cereal. Can I put it in my cereal? That'd be one idea. Thanks.


ps--if I'm just supposed to, like, eat it with a spoon, that'd be cool. In fact, coolest. I'm just not sure. Does this taste like agony?
