Ground Flax seed?

Recommended Posts

I am wanting to add some ground flax seed to my diet, for the extra fiber and it is good for me. I have never seen this, where can I find it? I have a Walmart, and a Healthy Life Market(they carry some things not much) and Kroger that is about it. Do any of these stores carry it you think? What food do you put it in besides yogurt? Also how many points is it?

It can be bought almost everywhere now, most of the time I find it in seed form and I just put it in my magic bullet and make my own ground flax. It also saves $ grinding it yourself. The calories and stuff should be on the pkg. So you can use your W.W. slider to figure out the pt value. If you use whole seeds they are good on salads or if ground you can put it into almost any dish you want a little nutty flavor, soups, salads, main dishes, oatmeal,etc. Hope this helps a little.:bcb_bigsm

oh I forgot, if you keep it in the fridge it helps keep it fresh.

I find it in the refrigerated section of the "health food" store. It's a bulk item, but usually they will have NI in the store somewhere or you can look it up on calorieking.com or some such.

I get mine either at the health food store in the bulk bins or at the grocery store in what I call the "unusual grains" section, which can be by the baking items, cereal or diet/health food sections. The grocery stores here carry Bob's Red Mill, but you can also order it online from them. I bake a lot with it to sneak some fiber and Omega-3s in on DH and the kids, lots of healthified muffins and cookies.

Thank you, I am out to find some.

I get mine at the health food store in the bulk foods...but I grind it up myself in the food processor.

 

I loooove it on salads (ground)....I use it in place of all the other bad stuff I could put on it like bacon bits, etc....and I think it tastes great!

I found some at Kroger, I have been putting it in my yogurt along with a little grape nuts, I love the crunch. That is a good idea putting it on your salad, Ill have to try that. It really does taste good, and it is good for you too what a plus.

Wow, never heard of that. I bought me some of the PB2 today, got lucky and found it at a health food resteraunt. I can't wait to try it.

What is PB2?

 

I grind flax seeds in a coffee grinder. I haven't had difficulty finding them.

Just a quick note. Ground seeds are better nutritionally as long as they're fresh ground. I salute :salutthose of you who grind as you go!! I keep my seeds (flours too) in the freezer. They stay fresh longer. Nothing will put you off seeds or such as rancid or buggy batch.
