Flax seed tip/question


#1

tip: soak flax seeds in water for awhile (mine today had soaked for 24 hrs. but less than that may be enough) and then blend them into you MRPs; they soften up nicely and add some texture.
question: how much flax seed do i need every day to get the recommended amount of omega threes?
thanks in advance

Forget the seeds. Buy the oil.

I am not sure but you may be leaching out some of the nutrients when you do this. Especiqally if you discard the water that you soak them in.
