I don't like that the article mentioned adding whole seeds to bread and the such.
I have read in MULTIPLE place that if you eat the whole seeds you lose ALL of the nutritional benefits due to how your body metabolizes them or digests them... something like that. I'm not a nutritionist!
I've also seen comments stating the same.
I've also read comments that state that the article says that if you store ground flax, it will become rancid.
What I did is bought an inexinsive coffee grinder, and grind just what I need.
Yesturday I made muffins and ground up 3 tablespoons to add to them. It took literally 10 seconds to grind them.
While this may be a little time consuming to grind just what you need everytime you want to add it to your food, it's better than having the ground flax go bad on you or not getting the nutrition from the flax seeds!
