I first saw these over at Madison’s blog. I’ve never had ground flax seed before, just whole flax seeds here and there in my cereals and bars. Blueberry is one of my favorite flavor so I picked this bag up when I saw it. I wanted to enrich my morning oatmeal with some healthy omega-3’s. I don’t want to keep my flax seed lying around, since once it is grounded, it loses its potency pretty quick, so this 7 oz bag is a good size for me. I made my basic oatmeal, added some cinnamon, and a spoonful of flax. This looks like grounded saw dust with tiny bits of blueberries here and there. The blueberry flavor is not very prominent and the taste of the flax is not bad at all. I expected a nuttier flavor in flax seed, but this particular brand is not nutty at all. I stirred it into my oatmeal and it added a nice bulk to it. Lately I noticed that I’ve been adding a lot of healthy fats to my diet. Creamy avocados, nut butters, healthy nuts, yummy hummus, and now extra flax seeds. I know healthy fats are good, but let’s just hope that I don’t just get plain ‘ol fat from them.
