Metric Conversion -Flax Seed Wheat Bread

Could anyone give a source or help with metric conversions?
I haven't a scale yet, but have seen recipes..that I would like to try.

Also, what is the difference between golden flax seed and the dark?

Try Google: just enter what you want, such as 2 pounds in kilograms. Google will do the work.

I eat (brown) flax every day as well. I never have detected any "fishy" taste; I find the taste pleasant and nutty. I grind up about a week's worth and sprinkle 1-2 Tablespoons on my morning yoghurt. I also sometimes put ground up flax meal into bread.
