Sourdough Flax Seed Bread

This is a hearty, and heart smart bread because Flax seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, which help elevate your good cholesterol. This is a modified recipe from Dr. Ed Wood's second book, "Classic Sourdoughs : A Home Baker's Handbook". Dr. Wood is also the author of the treasured "World Sourdoughs from Antiquity". Even thought I'd love it, I've made the seeds optional as my DH doesn't care for 'seedy' breads.
