The product called Kapai Puku is a delicious crunchy seed mix that helps promote weight loss, is high in omega 3 from flaxseed and chia seeds and is free of gluten and genetically modified ingredients. Crunchy and delicious added to cereal, salads, desserts, snacks, sandwiches or smoothies this product is in such high demand after the following news segment (click here to watch) it sells out instantly.
Kapai Puku is not yet available in New Zealand but it made me think about what is available that is specifically natural and good for the digestive system and whole body in a similar way. Then I remembered LSA. Anybody who has ever visited a health food store or supermarket aisle seems to have tried or at least heard of LSA or Linseed Sunflower and Almond mix.
I make my own version of LSA in Autumn when the nuts are fresh but I add walnuts for brain health and for the natural sweetness of wild New Zealand walnuts. I add this mix to cereals, baking, smoothies and yoghurt on a daily basis to keep myself in tip top nick.
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup linseed
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw wild walnuts
- Combine all ingredients and pulse in a food-processor until they resemble chunky breadcrumbs.
- Store in a glass jar in the fridge and use a few tablespoons per day. It is important that nuts and seeds are stored in a cool dark place to prevent the oils from becoming rancid.
If you are new to healthy living through prevention and would like to learn more about the concept behind products like LSA or Kapai Puku Dr Sandra Cabots 1996 book The Liver Cleansing Diet isn't too wacky. It is filled with great information on proteins, antioxidants, fresh real and natural food, leafy greens and the good oils.
