Re: Flax Seed
I just started using crushed organic flax seeds. I use about 2 TBS, crushed and put into a quart size mason jar and fill with filtered water. I punched a hole in the flat of the mason jar and screw it on and use a straw to drink my new favorite health concoction. I let it sit and soak for at least 30 minute then start drinking it--usually within a 4 hour period--longer if I have lots of stuff going on. (drink more water than usual, especially if you are prone to constipation.)
I normally drink a lot of water and get tired of it sometimes and need something different. The taste is nutty, slightly gelatinous, yummy and very satisfying. I find it has helped keep my digestion "moving". It took a few days to notice this and seems that most every day I notice that things are closer to normal than I have been in a long time. Is it perfect, no, but I do know that flax seeds are very healthy.
