I don't remember doing a cashew milk demo. Are you sure it was me or at the VET store?
I love the flax information though...

Oh, hello, Christy. Great to hear from you. I will try to be there.
Already your classes have changed my diet.
After watching your demo of making cashew milk in the blender, I realized that was the solution to my flax seed puzzle. You see, the polyunsaturated fatty acids (DHA) in flax seed are extremely unstable and go rancid quickly after the seed is milled for meal or pressed for oil. And rancid fats are potentially carcinogenic. That's why flax seed meal is correctly packaged in opaque foil and sealed in an inert nitrogen environment and the oil is correctly cold pressed and refrigerated prior to sale. Sooo... if the seed is soaked in water and then plopped directly into my smoothie to become flax milk, it is absolutely fresh when I consume it. Yay.. ! ... and I need the DHA for my aging brain.
Thank you sooo much for the cashew milk demo.
