ya you could do that.. a coffee grinder works the best in my opinion.. flax powder is a much more easily absorbed version than flax seeds.. flax seeds have a tendancy to go right through you, so it is recommended to grind them. thats why flax powders are popular, but you can do it yourself.. it will be better because it will be more fresh.. its just a little more of a pain, but cheaper

yes what said above is true..it's like a flour u can use it as just none of the carbs like flour
a blender idk how well that would work i know a food processor works well or a coffee grinder like said above

A less used definition of meal is "course powder ground from the seed of a grain", eg. oats and flax.
