    That was a tremendous homily Father, thank you for unpacking all that for us.

  3. Much material for deep contemplation. Thank you, Father.

    Wow, indeed.

    I just discovered flaxseed. I grind them up in a blender, and use the flour to make low-carb cookies. The flaxseed is mostly fat so I do not add any oil or butter, some of the fat is omega–3. It also has an incomplete protein, but add a whole egg, and it should be fine. A little splenda, salt, and baking powder, some dark choc chips, a little cocoa, et viola’! Flaxseed is excellent for low-carb cookies.

      That’s not fair. I need an exact recipe!!!

        If what I have read is correct, flaxseed oil is an extremely delicate oil and loses all its benefits when heated. Years ago a German doctor (Budwig) successfully used this oil as a major part of healing cancer patients but only used it raw, straight from the bottle. She blended it with a soft cheese (quark is the one she used and not fat reduced), added fruit and nuts and served it as a breakfast cereal.

    And I say WOW, Amen!!! I used to feel sorry for Cain but not any more. Thanks for all the explanations Father.

    Hey Sanfelipe007, I am gonna try your recipe EXCEPT will substitute a banana or stevia instead of using Splenda (those artificial sweeteners are just as bad if not worse than sugar)

    • Father George David Byers

      Grrrrrrr. Clue me in on measurements!!!

      • nancyv

        Sorry Father, I am one of those kind that just mixes until it looks/feels right. Terrible with numbers and conversions … which is why I am very grateful for ten whole fingers with which to pray a rosary.

      I am not talking flaxseed oil. I am talking about flaxseed, the grain. Oh Father, I cannot give you exact measures – yet. As a chef, I have internalized all the proportions and no longer need to measure anything. It just comes together like marble in Michelangelo’s hands. But I’ll make an effort to come up with a “one egg” recipe.

    Following is a link to the recipe for Flaxseed Muesli with some related information https://healthwyze.org/reports/190-the-true-budwig-protocol

      I put a tablespoon of whole raw flax seeds into plain yogurt and same for raw whole chia seeds and peanut butter powder. I sweeten coffee with Stevia but not this.

        Ok, here is a “one egg” recipe for dark choc chip flaxseed cookies (makes about 7 cookies)
        First, turn you oven to 350. With rack in center shelf.
        Measure 1/2 cup raw flaxseed (brown or golden) put in blender (a spice grinder is better if you have one) and blend on high for about 30 seconds. pour flour into a mixing bowl
        Put a heaping tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa and a pinch of salt onto the flour.
        put a 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and whatever sweetener you wish. Use about as much sweetener as you would use to sweeten a large cup of coffee.
        Add a handful dark choc chips (the smaller the chip size the better)
        Add handful of chopped nuts, if you like that sort of thing – I like walnuts.
        Take a tablespoon (not a teaspoon, not a soup spoon, not a…) and mix the dry ingredients. Crack an egg and add it to the mixture.
        Stir it up with the spoon until it makes a thick glop. Gather it into a ball. Should be glistening and sticky.
        Coat a small cookie sheet by rubbing the end of a stick of cold butter over the surface, or spray with a pan release spray -whatever you want.
        Use the spoon and your finger to drop glops of batter onto baking sheet. Don’t bother trying to shape it or anything – let them be unique. I get around seven glops. YMMV* Bake for 15 minutes. Take them out and eat them. Every oven is different, but I doubt they could burn in such a short time. If you have a history of burning food, then check the cookies after ten minutes. I can tell that they are ready by the just the smell. You will prolly want to adjust the amount of sweetener to suit your taste. Chocolate, as you know, is toxic to dogs. Flaxseed has loads of fiber so you can look forward to those happy benefits.

        Now I gotta get a blender. That should tell you something!

    Quick tip: you can skip the salt, cocoa, and sweetener and baking powder by adding a single serve package of hot chocolate! Nestle’ makes an artificaly sweetened variety that has just 25 calories. So the simplest recipe is just three ingredients: flaxseed flour, hot chocolate mix, and 1 egg. I’ve tried it just now and I think it would be fun and easy for kids.

    • sanfelipe007

      Oh good grief! 1/2 cup of flaxseed should be 1/4 cup of flaxseed. Or you could just add another egg. Oh, and the eggs should be Large.
