Default flax seed ideas

I bought flax seed meal and put it in my oatmeal. I couldn't get two bites down. Any other ideas on how to use this?

Also, the flax seed meal I got only has 60 cal at 4.5 grams of fat per 2 tbls. Does this sound about right? I think I will have to use alot of this to get any benefits. Any thoughts?

I have no idea myself. I've never used flax seed meal before. I've always used peanut butter in my oatmeal for fat and I also use Flax oil for my EFA's in other meals.

i put flax seed meal in my salads. i can never taste it... there are too many other things in there to overpower the taste. i find it better to sprinkle it on/with things that have strong tastes so i do not taste the flax (such as tuna).

how much peanut butter are you having daily? are you eating natural peanut butter?

I haven't tried the natural peanut butter yet. My store was out this last week. If it taste good, I wouldn't mind eating at least 2 tbls a day (more if my body lets me get away with it.[img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) I don't want to hinder my fat loss though.

i think 2 tbsp of natural peanut butter per day is ok on a cut. i would not eat more than that though.

i think it tastes great... much better taste than the jiff or skippy kind [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

i think natural peanut butter is the best.

we have "wild Oats" markets here and i go and grind my own. but about once every couple of months i order from:
www.jjhulls.com
they grind it fresh to order and have the most wonderful cashew butter!!!
not to mention, the almond, pecan and filbert butter are also good.
But then again, you have to be a nut fanatic like me....
but like Krypto, i sub my natty PB as my fat choice because not only do i love the flavor, but i am addicted to the texture as well.

It's more than just chicken and veggies!
