LSA (Linseed, Sunflower And Almond Meal Mix)
LSA is a combination of linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds ground up into a meal, which is a term used to describe a coarse flour. Together, these 3 seeds boast an impressive nutritional profile. Not only are they dense in protein and good fats, they each have a range of nutrients to support a healthy lifestyle.
Health benefits of LSA
Linseeds are a great source of the Omega 3 essential fatty acids, important for reducing pain and inflammation in the body and supporting joint health and balanced moods. Linseeds are also high in fibre, which will feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut, leading to better digestion, improved immune function and blood sugar balance.
Sunflower seeds have a mild, nutty flavour and are high in Vitamin E, magnesium, iron and B6 as well as being a great source of protein, fibre and good fats. Eating sunflower seeds regularly can help to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, reduce muscle tension and protect the well-being of your brain.
Almonds are a popular nut as they have a delicate flavour and a whole range of health benefits. They are alkalining, which means they are gentle on your body, they are a great source of Vitamin E and a good source of magnesium, calcium and iron. Almonds are high in protein and may play an important role in preventing colon cancer due to their high fibre levels.
LSA in the kitchen
Introducing LSA into your diet can be easy. Simply add to cereals, smoothies and pancakes for extra protein, nutrients, fats and fibre. For a gluten free crumb coating on fish and meat simply coat with tapioca flour, dip into whisked egg and then roll in LSA. When baking, try mixing 2 or 3 spoonfuls into your muffin and bread recipes for a deliciously nutty flavour and extra nutrition.
