Flax seed oil -- suggestions?

I just got some flax seed oil and can you say YUCK! Any suggestions on how I can get this stuff down? I almost threw up just trying to drink it fast.

You sure it wasn't rancid in that case? Did you keep it refrigerated? Flax seed oil goes rancid easily.

I don't think so - I tried it when I first opened it. It was just oiliy like drinking olive oil. Which I really love but would not want to drink it straight. KWIM?

Re: Flax seed oil -- suggestions?

I put 2 tablespoons of freshly ground flaxseed (you can by flaxseed and grind it in a coffee grinder) in my breakfast shake each morning. It adds texture, but by the time I add the berries, the cashew butter, protien powder, etc. I can't even taste the stuff. I also add olive oil or co**** oil (which I like the taste of in the shake) sometimes. So try putting it in a supplement shake or mixing it with something you do like. I eat a lot of things I don't like this way, by burying it with foods I do like.

I with you, I can't drink the stuff. I buy the capsules, they are huge, but much easier to get down.
