Since I posted the raw nut and seed bars, I've received numerous emails about where to get LSA.

In Australia, LSA is widely recognized and available at mainstream grocery stores. Dr Sandra Cabot 's book, The Liver Cleansing Diet made this magical mix famous.

LSA stands for a blend of ground linseeds (flax seeds), sunflower seeds, and almonds. This mix is an amazing source of dietary fiber, 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, metabolize 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; fortify baked goods; 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.
