How do you prepare flax seeds?
Flax seeds must be finely ground into a meal to get the maximum benefits from the omega-3 oil and dietary fiber. You can use a coffee grinder and dedicate its use to grinding flax seeds. Once ground, the flax seeds should be consumed quickly, because the oil in the seeds oxidizes rapidly. Try to consume 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed daily, and make sure you drink plenty of water when adding flax seed to your diet. Ground flax seed can easily be mixed into salad dressing, or added on top of dishes including salads, stir-fry, soup, stews, and cereal. Flax seeds are 35-40% oil, so a similar amount of oil may be omitted from any recipe requiring oil that also includes ground flax seeds. Similarly, about 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds steeped in 3 tablespoons of warm water for 2-3 minutes will substitute for one egg in recipes.
