Veronica Mars: Believe it or not I needed this tutorial...lol..thanks.
Zeke Aeloen: "Put in blender" these 3 words do the same thing as this entire video.
People sure love to overcomplicate things these days.
speedwayman100: actually the brown flax is more nutricious for you
Shadow Heart: @lsalter95 so how can i really eat flax seeds and sesame seeds? do i use a
blender such as coffy blender and then add milk ? i really need vegerian
guidelines and help!
squeekycheeks: You say that like it's a bad thing! JK :)
timmytapeworm13: The flavor of the coffee could get into your flax I imagine. But if you
don't mind that then you don't have to have a separate grinder.
Lynn Salter: Shawn, I've had a Black & Decker and currently have a Proctor Silex, which
I got this past December at Sears for less than $10 (it was on sale!). I
think I paid around $16 for the B&D at Wal-Mart perhaps. You should be able
to find one at a local store. Lynn
Lynn Salter: When grounding grain into flour they say within 48 hours 90% of the
nutrition is lost due to the oxidation process. Keeping ground flour and
meal (flax seed) in the refrigerator (or better yet in the freezer) will
retain the nutritional value much longer. It is best to grind them just
before use, which is the real benefit of a grinder or adding them to a
Lynn Salter: It is really very easy to "conceal" flax seed in many of our foods. Thanks
Kelly Gwilliam: Why is it important to have a separate grinder just for flax seeds? Can't
you clean it out in between uses of coffee grounds?
Lynn Salter: @TheRogueMonk Yes, they pretty much remain whole. Help with elimination but
you don't get the nutritional essence like with the ground seeds.
scotthamptonshoots: @lsalter95 Thank you kindly. I'll take a look for one today. It'll be used
solo, I don't drink coffee :)
Shadow Heart: can i eat raw uncrushed sesame seeds? can you eat uncrushed flax seeds?
Apollonas M.: thnx for the nice video!!! Greetings from Greece !
Lynn Salter: @TheRogueMonk I suggest you grind the seeds and add to other foods you're
eating, like smoothies, salad, oatmeal, etc. I have several videos on my
website for making smoothies at healthy habits etc dot com then click on
how-to-videos. Just be creative and add to any and everything you can! At
least once a day.
StarFire Alternity: Thanks for making it : X
Lynn Salter: The chance of a lingering strong coffee flavor!
free2dance4ever: I add it to my yogurt. It gives it a nice texture and thickens up yogurt
that's too runny. I wouldn't recommend adding it to Greek yogurt though...
That tasted nasty, because Greek yogurt is already VERY thick for yogurt.
yurpbeautiful: Will this make them more soluble?
timmytapeworm13: I guess a coffee grinder is a lot better. I just tried using a food
processor and it did nothing but swirl the flax around hahaha. I like
putting it in fruit smooties. I'm going to try soaking the flax in milk
overnight and hopefully that will break it up better. Nice kitchen BTW, I'm
jealous. Thanks for the video.
Tom Kameika: Thank you, Lynn! :O)
jonock: I find if you keep a container of flaxseed in the fridge and grind it when
it's cold it grinds much better and doesn't clump, otherwise if it's too
warm some oil will separate and it's a bit messy. Makes the grinder easy to
clean too . Just needs brushing out
ObeyBunny: I don't have a coffee grinder, but I do have a hand-crank grain mill and
I've been warned about grinding flax seed, peanuts, and other oily things
for fear that the grinder will get gummed up. So my question is, do you
have to replace your coffee grinder often if you grind flax in it, or is
there a special way of cleaning the grinder, or have you simply never
experienced a problem with flax seeds gumming up the blades? Loved the
video and thank you very much.
Lynn Salter: Yes, grinding them allows better absorption. Whole seeds will provide fiber
but much more benefit when ground.
stop08it: i suffer from chronic constipation and i've found that it works better if I
just take a spoonful of ground flaxseeds by itself. Is it ok if I grind
them a big longer. Also how long can you keep them in the refridgerator
before it loses all it's health benefits....thanks! great video also :)
Shadow Heart: @lsalter95 i red somewhere that if you dont grind flax seed then you will
not digest it? is this wrong?
555sss: Tis is a great video on an easy way to prepare flax seed. Well done!
Lynn Salter: Thanks for the great tip! I don't usually have a problem with it clumping
and I brush my grinder clean too!
Shawn Zaidermann: Hi Lynn. Can you tell me what brand of the coffee grinder you have? Not
looking to spend a ton or buy online if I can get it locally. Thanks.
Lynn Salter: Yes, although I have added whole flax seed directly to my blender when
preparing a smoothie and they usually grind up well. Thanks for the kitchen
compliment. It's big and allows lots of room to move around. I do love the
island counter, especially for when I have classes or doing demos. Enjoy
your smoothies, I love them too! In fact I just finished a banana,
pineapple and blueberry smoothie with flax seeds, yum! Lynn
scotthamptonshoots: Nice video, very informative. We used a blender, but I want a dedicated
machine. Which coffee grinder can you recommend? Thanks!
Shadow Heart: how can i grind it without coffy grinder?
Lynn Salter: @TheRogueMonk Yes you can. The ground flax seeds provide more nutritional
value than the whole seed. I sue whole sesame seeds in my homemade bread
Lynn Salter: @scotthamptonshoots My coffee grinder is a Black & Decker, cost around $15.
Yes, you don't want to grind coffee and flax seeds (or other seeds) with
the same grinder. Lynn
Lynn Salter: @TheRogueMonk You can use a blender. I put flax seeds in all the smoothies
I make so you'd just put the whole seeds in the blender first and grind
