What is Flax Meal?
Flax Meal is ground up Flax Seed. You can buy it as Flax meal in some health food stores, but the most economical way is to buy Flax Seeds and grind them yourself in a coffee grinder. Flax Oil can be a little pricey and if you can incorporate Flax Meal into your diet, you get the Omega-3 benefits, plus fiber and protein. How do you eat Flax meal? Well you can eat it by itself, but it mixes well into things like tuna salad, chicken salad, etc. Basically all fat, protein and fiber 100 gm has 370 cal from fat and 80 from protein with only trace carbs according to a nutritional analysis by the Flax Council of Canada (Thanks to Darcy Semeniuk for pointing out this site). http://www.flaxcouncil.
