LSA stands for a blend of ground linseeds (flax seeds), sunflower seeds, and almonds. This mix is an amazing source of dietary fibre, protein, omega fatty acids, minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, selenium, copper and zinc, and vitamins A, B, D and E.
This mix also loves on your liver. Our livers store vitamins, metabolise fats, and cleanse the body by breaking down toxic wastes so they can be expelled from the body. We want our livers firing on all cylinders. LSA cleanses the liver by supplying it with easily digestible nutrients.
Add it to smoothies; sprinkle it on oatmeal and other cereals; stir it through yogurt, chia pudding, and fruit salad; or use it to bind veggie burgers, fruit rolls, and power bars.
I prefer not to purchase pre-ground and mixed LSA. Make your own to ensure maximum freshness and quality, and store in a sealed container in the fridge.
1 1/2 cups raw flax seeds
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raw almonds
Grind the flax seeds in a spice grinder or food processor until the texture of a fine meal remove.
Place the sunflower seeds and almonds into a food processor and pulse until the consistency of a fine meal. Add in the flax meal, and pulse again until evenly combined.
Transfer to a sealed glass container, and store in the fridge for up to 3 months.
