What can I do with flax seed?

I bought some and I know it is very healthy, but I don't know what to do with it.

i put in my oatmeal every am.
i also use it in smoothies, i have heard people putting in their salads, oh, and i also use it in yogurt.
you can pretty much put it in anything.... it just gives a kind of robust, nutty flavor.

Re: What can I do with flax seed?

You can add it to pretty much anything. I add it to almost all of my baked goods, except cupcakes and stuff like that. I also do the oatmeal thing. I even put some in DD's peanut butter sandwiches.

I use it in my smoothies, as well as pancakes. Great tasting.

I mix it in yogurt, oatmeal for my kiddos. You need to grind it (I use a coffee grinder) to get all the benefits though.
