Default flaxseed meal makes me feel spacey?

Whenever I eat anything with flaxseed meal I feel spacey and kinda weird the rest of the day. For example, a little muffin made with flax seed meal, an egg, baking soda, and cinnamon, with butter. (Nuke in a coffee mug for 60 sec or so).

Any of the ingredients in other recipes I'm fine.

Is it possible to have a flax intolerance? This happened before I started sb but I thought I'd give the muffin a try again during phase 1, thinking maybe all the sugar and carbs I was eating before were what was making me feel weird.

But it's definitely only when I have flaxseed meal. Any ideas?

Maybe you do have a slight allergy. Try to get your Omega 3's from another source, like chia or something.

ah, so it's omega 3s in there. i think i have that in pill form so maybe i'll just take a few of those a week instead of trying flax. it's a shame cause the flax seed meal stuff is pretty tasty.

If you want the health benefits of omega-3s, you're much better off obtaining your omega-3s from eating oily fish or from supplements sourced from fish oil or algae.
