Okay it's not really blisteringly white, but a kind of beige colour, but it is full or the most amazing super foods. Everybody needs to figure out ways to get more nutrients into their diets and if you are like me there is just so much I can fit into my meals every day. I like to come up with ideas that help me get the most vitamins and minerals into us without us even realising that we are doing it. This is also a terrific idea for finnicky eaters or kids or elderly people.

This powder has the following ingredients:

Sunflower seeds
Pumpkin seeds
Quinoa flakes

To make it just add equal amounts and blend it up until it's in powder form. Store it in a glass jar, in the fridge.

Now, why have I added these particular ingredients? Well the first three, you have recognised as the traditiona LSA mix and I added the others because they are super awesome as well, so why not pack as much into the powder as we can.

Linseeds, Sunflower seeds and Almonds (LSA), is an easy, extremely versatile way to add extra nutrients to meals. LSA is rich in protein, which helps to keep your blood-sugar levels balanced and curb sugar cravings. LSA will provide you with a rich source of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9. This will help to promote a healthy heart and brain function, and it contains important minerals such as calcium, zinc and magnesium.

Pumpkin seeds have a wide variety of nutrients ranging from magnesium and manganese to copper, protein and zinc, pumpkin seeds are nutritional powerhouses wrapped up in a very small package. They also contain plant compounds known as phytosterols and free-radical scavenging antioxidants,1 which can give your health an added boost. Because these are high-fiber seeds, they’re able to boost your fiber intake

Quinoa contains more protein than any other grain. It can help lower cholesterol levels as it is a great source of fibre and helps to promote cardiovascular health. Quinoa contains a range of important nutrients, such as iron and B vitamins, for red blood cell production and energy; calcium, for strong bones; magnesium, for nervous system health; and vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. It's also an ideal grain for diabetics as it has a low glycaemic index, which will help keep blood-sugar levels stable and prevent sharp spikes in insulin. You can use quinoa as a substitute for rice.

So, as you can see this powder is chockers full of the good stuff and so easy to include in your daily food.

I like to add a tablespoon to my smoothies, but you can add some to just about every dish you make. Try adding a tablespoon or two to sweet or savoury dishes. The flavour is not overpowering, so the powder can be added to just about anything you can think of. Try some in your next home made pizza dough, biscuits, cakes, stews, desserts, sauces or just about anything. You can even sprinkle it on your yogurt and fruit, or muesli.
