1 tbs is 59 caloies but I heard it is really good for you. I was wondering if anyone knew more about it? Does it just help your immune system or what?

The flaxseed that I use is 60 calories, 4g fiber, and 3g protein for 2 tbsp. It's super high in anti-oxidants, specifically the omega -3's. It also has lignans - a natural antioxidant and member of plant estrogens (phytoestrogens). Can help to maintain breast and colon health by binding estrogens and other substances that might promote unchecked cell growth. To get the lignans that are in just 2 tbsp. of flaxseed meal you'd need to eat about 30 cups of fresh brocolli.

I grind it in a coffe grinder and add to pancake mix. Or just sprinkle on salad.

Hey, it's 6:44 again.
Yes, the pancakes do have a different taste. It's not a bad taste, though. It's like the difference between white bread and wheat bread. I guess it makes them a bit hearty. In the salad, I don't even taste them.
If you prefer, there are plenty of varieties of flaxseed oil capsules you can buy and just take them as a supplement. I prefer the real thing usually.
