Mash it with peanut butter. Great prebed snack plus a glass of milk.

Grind it and eat it straight. The whole seed is really gritty so I prefer to just get it over with.

It's good in cereal, oatmeal, pb etc.

I actually did this once, go for it if you want but it took a lot of chewing for me lol. now i have pre-ground organic flax which i add to yogurt and my shakes sometimes

Do you have to chew or can you just swallow them

I'm pretty sure they need to be ground up to get any of the Omega 3s, otherwise you will just **** them out

Yea you definitely need to chew them. Even then, though, most of them won't actually get crushed when you swallow them and they will just go right through your system. Also if you mix it with anything theres an even greater chance you wont chew them properly. Grind them yourself or buy them pre-ground, otherwise its a waste of time really.
edit: or you can just buy flaxseed oil at pretty much any health food store

Coffee grinder. Make sure to swivel as you grind.

Mixed with whey upon waking up, and with some cottage cheese/whey/PB at night.

You should buy em "ungrinded" because they don't last long after beeing grinded. When they have been grinded put em inn the fridge. I use this one: Krups Fast Touch Coffee Grinders, probably cheap on amazon. And its awesome :D

I also mix it with vegetables ;)
