I read that the body cannot digest whole flax seed so it should be ground before soaking. If that is the case, can the body digest flax seed that is soaked but not ground?
Personally, I prefer soaking the seeds and eating them with the moist, gel-like substance around them. Grinding manually seems to be hard work, although I have never tried. And I don't like to use blenders and other such equipment. I don't have concrete reasons for this, but they just feel artificial and seem to involve the wrong kind of prana.
