Default Flax bread

Hi All

i found this recipe for flax bread on the forum but i was wondering if anyone knew the breakdown of it for fitday or how to enter the separate ingredients to get the combined breakdown of the prot,fat etc.


This is what I use, but if you look up in the Recipes (look up by the Atkins Diet Bulletin Board bar) you can find Book's recipes.

I use a small Tupperware bowl, or a small soup bowl.

Two TBS melted butter
Beat in one large egg and a pinch of salt (no need if your butter is salted)
mix in 3 TBS of ground flax and
1/2 tsp of baking powder

let sit for a moment, then nuke. My microwave takes about a minute and 20 seconds. Start with a minute, and go until there is no wet spot in the centre.
Let cool for a minute, and turn it out onto a rack to cool. Slice into 3 slices and enjoy.

If you haven't been eating flax, then 3 TBS is WAY too much to scarf down in one sitting. Start with a slice a day and see how you feel.
Flax is great for combating constipation, but too much of it is NOT a good thing.

I like to have a slice for breakfast and a slice for lunch...spread it out through the system really likes that.

You can add things to it, like oregano, garlic powder, or whatever floats your boat!
You can make a sweet one too, but I found that plain or savoury is much more versatile.

Your entire recipe:

calories 371
fat 35
saturated 16
poly 2
mono 9
carbs 8
fiber 6
protein 11

When I need to work up a recipe, I go to tomorrow's food in FitDay. Then I enter all the ingredients. For yours I did a custom food for the flax meal. I use the golden which has 30 calories for 1 T with 2 g carbs and 2 g fiber. Yours may be different. When everything is entered, I have the total nutritional information for the entire recipe. I use this information to create a custom food and then I delete everything for that day in FitDay (because I will be using it for actual food eaten tomorrow).

Default thanks for the info

thanks for the help with the ingredients. now i know how to enter recipes which is a great help and i can use the UK ingredients to get a true value. i did use golden linseed which my local health store says is the same as flax seed so i'll see how they match with the info i've been given.

thanks guys
