Flaxseed

So I bought some Flaxseed at the grocery store because I knew it has a lot of health benefits, I just didn't know how good it was for you. I did a little research and was pleasantly surprised. Evidently it is a major source for omega 3s, can help to reduce the chance of breast cancer, and it can lower the bad cholesterol. It also has 9 grams of fiber to every serving. The only problem is I am having a hard time finding opportunities to use it. I made flaxseed bread last night and it is TASTY! I think it will definently become an addition to our food menu. If anyone knows of other yummy ways to use flaxseed or even wheatgerm (other than sprinkling it in salads) let me know please! Thanks
