I know people have mentioned using these things (what would you call them grains, supplements, whole foods???) in their foods....I was wondering what foods you mix them in and reasons behind them? Thanks!!!

I would call them seeds. Dunno. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I have sprinkled hemp seed on my cereal. My main reason for doing this is because I got it free at that HFS and didn't want to throw it out. I believe hemp seeds contain an easily digestible protein or sommat. Possibly even a complete protein. I don't know.<br><br><br><br>
Flax seed would be for Omega 3 fatty acids. I buy a flax seed bread. But I don't use flax seeds themselves for anything.

hemp seeds can go on anything, or just eat them straight! I grind flax seeds and put it in my cereal. Also use them to replace eggs in recipes. : )

hemp seeds have omega 3s that are stable after cooking.<br><br><br><br>
flax seeds have omega 3s but are best used unheated. try adding flax oil to a smoothie.

I add ground up flax seeds to my oatmeal sometimes. I also add it to my baked goods every now and then.<br><br><br><br>
My omega-3 source of choice is walnuts <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

I have a cereal with both hemp seeds and flax seeds in it. VERY YUMMY! Also I keep a bag of flax seeds handy for sprinkling on top of some TVP bake I make. Also good to sprinkle on stir fry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I love how they taste so I add them to a lot of things I eat <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

i've never used hemp seed. but, i keep a box of ground flax seed in my fridge. i add it to smoothies, or breads, or whatever i feel could use it. to me, it has a mild taste that i don't notice much.<br><br><br><br>
although, i guess i never gave much thought to how heat would effect the omega's.<br><br><br><br>
also, you probably already know this, but flax seed is a great egg replacer. a very handy seed indeed.<br><br><br><br>
jill.

I put flaxseed meal in my homemade hummus, and I add some to various baked goods. I also use it to make a kickass cinnamon granola. It's cooked at 275 so the Omega 3s are ok. I tried a boxed brownie mix that had hemp seeds in it once. It was ok, I wouldn't buy it again, though.<br><br>

Flax Seed is great source for Omega 3. Good source of fatty acid when you are not eating fish such as Salmon. this helps keep your joints lubricated and brain being alert. If you don't want to take flax seed you can take the capsules.

Me and my sister stick the milled flax seed in alot of things. On salads, in breading with tofu, in drinks, pancakes, etc. It's awesome.<br><br><br><br>
Nutritional Yeast is just as awesome. Put that with mashed taters or on a pizza. Tonight I am putting it with milled flax seed and garlic powder and rolling my bread sticks in it.

It's adds a delicious yummyness. Plus it acts as a binder in case your hummus is too runny.<br><br>

I mix 2 tablespoons of flax seed oil in a small amount of juice every morning because I have psoriasis and it's supposed to help. I CAN'T stand the taste of it alone. I stir while I drink to try to keep it mixed as possible. Does anyone know if it's alright to mix it with juice like that?

I put hemp seeds in my cereal, soy yogurt etc., mainly for the omegas. Mind you, I use the ones without the husk. The ones that don't taste all green and herb-ish.
