    Hi Ross, I’m confused by conflicting advice I’ve read on safe amounts of ground flax and chia seeds. Some packets contain warnings about exceeding safe levels. I have a heaped dessertspoon of each mixed into my porridge in the morning. The ground flax seed is sprouted. Is it ok to have more of them in a smoothie? This one sounds delish!
