The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.


About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

I Need Help From The Bloggerverse!

OK. I know a friend who has some flaxseed. I asked if I could use some, since I'm a cheapskate and knew they were not exactly barreling through it. I needed just 1/3 cup of the stuff.

I wanted to make this recipe I found in a recent issue of Runners World.


It's all healthy and shiz. I have all the ingredients except the flax! 

WELL....

Said "friend" gave me 9 pounds of the stuff.

This times three

Said friend was not exactly barreling through it like I knew they weren't. 

So, my question to the bloggersphere is WTF do I do with all this ground flax? 

I don't want to throw it away - I REALLY hate waste. And I don't know anyone who will want it. I would offer a bloggie giveaway, but it expired in May, so I don't want someone getting all up in my shiz about that. It's all sealed and I'm not afraid of some harmless seeds. I think the chia seeds in my fridge are older then that...

I can say that I won't be adding it to any smoothies because 1. I don't have a blender and 2. I'm kinda burnt out on anything with yogurt. - long story.

Do you have any ideas - or actually want some of this stuff?

  1. Oh wow. Throw it in the freezer. Use it on salads, in yogurt, banana bread, everything.

    1. That's kinda what I am thinking. I just googled and look like some recipes like meatballs can use flax too.

  2. I have no freaking idea! Maybe search for recipes?

  3. I have that same article marked with some great intention to try making the Carrot-Date Cupcakes. You'll have to let us know how the Lemony Almond-Oat Cookies turned out.

    To your question, I've never personally used flaxseed, but I searched online for "can flaxseed replace flour" and a few articles popped up.

    One was an article of "4 Ways to Use Flax Seeds as a Food Substitute" at www.3fatchicks.com. It is short and provides a few ideas. http://www.3fatchicks.com/4-ways-to-use-flax-seeds-as-a-food-substitute/

    This short article also provides a few ideas. http://www.organicauthority.com/mojo-foods/3-ways-to-mix-flax-seeds-into-your-holiday-baking.html

    Still...3 lbs seems like a lot of flaxseed since most of these recipes/suggestions use less than a cup. I wonder if you put it in a bird feeder, what kind of birds will come visit :-)
