Flax Seeds are another super food that I have little to no experience using. I've heard a lot about flax seeds and flax seed oil as it is one of the healthy oils suggested to use daily through Weight Watchers. Apparently, Flax Seed Oil is an oil that is not good to cook with. Not exactly sure why? Flax Seeds are full of fiber. 3 grams per tablespoon. Flax seeds are not digested properly if eaten whole. The preferred way to serve flax seeds is ground or in a flax seed meal form. Something else to remember is that flax seeds and the flax seed oil should be kept refrigerated. If it's left out too long, it can become rancid.
