Sesame Vs. Flax Seeds

Roasted sesame seeds taste like candy to me. Utterly mind-blowingly delicious.

Flax seeds? Taste like dirt. (Well, my opinion anyways, does anyone even “taste” flax seeds?!?) Flax seeds were planted and cultivated for thousands of years to make fiber, rugs and clothing, they became a popular food about 20 or 30 years ago when Omega-3 became the rage. Omega-3 went missing when we changed our dietary habits (to refined products) and were brain-washed into thinking fats (nuts seeds) were bad. And our animals became as lazy and ill-fed as we are. Omega-3 isn’t some miracle cure we can take in seed, oil or pill form, it was something that was part of our diet which we took out, that was bred and fed out of our animals. But these combination of fats are something that evolved our brains and genetic expression. Don’t mess with mother nature. Not saying that flax may not have some medicinal value or be a good addition milled into breads, but if you’re going to eat something, I say, make it from quality sources, but especially make sure it’s delicious!
