In this video, Kent Altena ( http://www.youtube.com/bowulf ) shows you how to grind your own flax meal. This how-to video shows you how to make a low carb flour alternative. Kent says, "Prior to low carb, I would have had no idea [how to obtain and grind flax seeds], and I am sure I am not alone. This is not say the only method as I know some people use their high end Vita-Mix blender to grind their meal or you could even use a mortar and pestle. This method is probably the cheapest given the $9 Wal-mart special coffee grinder, which is still going strong after 4 years of use."
