    The problem : toasted flax seeds… Like all "oily" stuff (seeds, nuts) the cooking brings some nasty chemical transformation to the fats making them quite harmful for the system !

    I use this every morning, flax needs to be crushed in order to get full benefits or it just passes through your system. try Spirulina instead of flax seed many more nutritional benefits.

    Spinach and kale freeze great. They break apart easily to use in smoothies.

    Re: Flaxseed meal…How long will it keep in the ’fridge?

    interesting. I didn’t know things like spinach and kale could be frozen. Do you use it frozen or thaw it first before putting in the blender?
