You need flax meal. Either grind it yourself from flax seed or buy online or in shops.

I am told Holland and Barrett stock it but mine doesn't seem to, only the seed! Amazon do have it, so does ebay.

Someone recommended Julian Graves, but haven't tried there.

The wonderful MIM will change your life and make Atkins a sheer joy.

You can google flaxmeal or ground linseed, the term we tend to use much more here in the UK.

Amazon.co.uk

I just got a delivery from there.

LINUSIT organic milled flaxseed.

Ready ground for you. I bought two packs and the postage was the same as if for just the one. Better still it is GOLDEN flaxseed (linseed) which is said to be better tasting and is lighter in colour. It is usually a bit more expensive.

Go for it cos the MIM is gonna steal your Atkins heart away!

ps

Just eating a MIM I made from the golden flaxmeal. oh what joy!

We have a large Tesco by us which does stock it although the larger bags have been replaced by smaller recently. It's near to the gluten-free/organic food

I found Prewett's ground linseed at my Tesco online. Small bag sure enough but only £1.65 or so and good quality.

I made a savoury MIM base for pizza tonight. Oh, my! I am gonna SO enjoy it.

I just love it! Ha Ha. I am very glad because it has become a fantastic addition to my daily diet. I experiment all the time with new ways to use it.

First make the MIM Sona. Make it sweet as per the recipe if you like, or leave out the sweetener and cinnamon and add a little bit of salt and maybe pepper. You will then have a plain bun mix for a burger or sandwich.

Or cut it up and toast it! Delicious.

That's interesting Laura, I don't find it has any taste at all, mind you I use tiny amounts of it.

Yes it does have a sort of oily back-kick on the taste buds! The golden variety is milder and smoother.

I experiment more and more with flavourings and adding cream cheese or cream or whatever to the mix. It all helps.

I probably use so little that I can't taste it.

I have now started to make chocolate MIMs. There are few words able to do justice to how yummy and filling these are, and wonderful for a choc craving.

I am in Phase 3 so can add cocoa and other things to my MIMs. Not sure if cocoa is allowed in Induction - have read that it is classed as a 'spice' so a small amount should not really be a problem, but this might need to be clarified. I like a fairly generous amount of cocoa, not a flat teaspoonful. If you are allowed it, add 'to taste' I think. It has to be really chocolate-y for me to swoon. I add a little vanilla flavouring, too.

I make them slightly less sweet than I would like, and have done since the first experimental mix. When I feel like it I add sweetener and flavouring (vanilla, for example) to cream cheese, whip it up together and use it as low carb 'frosting'. Delicious.

Using a savoury MIM mix as pizza base worked out very well - yum.

Wow thank you Jim! All you ever wanted to know about cocoa... but were afraid to ask. LOL.

But everyone is wondering, how many carbs in one teaspooful?

If it is already in there I apologise, I must have developed temporary cocoa-fact blindness!
