I would like recipes using ground flax. Thank you,
Gwen from Minnesota
I don't have actual recipes but have used wheat germ before in muffins. I would tend to think it could be substituted evenly. We usually mix a tablespoon or so into flavored yogurt or toss some into the cereal bowl.
I'm new with the flax seed too but have heard great things about it health wise so will be experimenting more with it in the future.
Look here..I found some...
I put a tablespoon of ground flax seed on my oatmeal every morning. I have even put it on cold cereal too, but I prefer it on oatmeal
I love ground flax in my baked goods. I add a couple tablespoons in with the flour when I am making muffins. I add a quarter cup to my favorite bread recipe. It gives a wonderful nutty flavor. The most supprising is adding it in to oatmeal raisin cookies. It tasts great.

Flaxseed can be incorporated into your daily intake every day by the following simple steps:
Add 2 T. fresh ground flaxseed into EITHER
yogurt OR cereal OR salad.
Just make sure that you have it once per day.
You can get flaxseed recipes by going to the Canadian Flax Council.
I am diabetic and in an effort to lower my blood sugars, began taking 3 Tablespoons of flax seed daily in my morning juice (Crystal Light fake orange juice). Since taking ground flax seed, my blood sugars have been amazingly low. It has even shocked my endocrinologist. I whole heartedly endorse the use of flax seed and so does my physician now.
