    Can anyone guide me in the right direction? I searched Asda high and low today to try and find some but couldn't get any. Also which aisle would you find it in? Never even heard of it until I came on here LOL :confused:

    I buy it from Holland and Barratt. Not sure where it would be in supermarket - maybe near lentils/beans or packets of non-salted nuts?

    Thanks girlies. I checked all those in Asda Linz but couldn't see it - they probably don't stock it. Maybe if I try Tesco? x

    I think there should be restaurants with atkins menus, weight watchers, slimming world too etc. Then you could know how many carbs exactly when eating out :D

    Is it easy to grind? Can it be done in a blender or even a coffee grinder? I cant seem to buy it like that and have only found the seeds. Is there a sort i should look for in particular? I remember reading on here somewhere that the dark one is better????? I really want to make some oopsie rolls as everyone is talking about them, im missing out :(

    You don't need flaxseed for oopsies, flaxseed is used for MiM's etc. xxx
