Healthy snack - make your own Trail Mix
One of my latest discoveries since going a bit raw is the trail mix.
You can buy it ready made, but I prefer to make up my own.
We recently did a 3 day hike and I took some of this along.
It is really tasty, and being full of healthy nutrient-dense goodies keeps you feeling full and strong.
This is the mix I made, but like any of these things, you can have fun and be creative and come up with your own favourite.
|Some ingredients for trail mix|
1 C cashew nuts
1 C raw almonds
1/2 C organic pomegranate seeds
1/2 C pumpkin seeds
1/2 C sunflower seeds
1/2 C linseeds
1/4 C sesame seeds
1/2 C dried organic raw goji berries
1/2 C dried organic white mulberries
1/2 C raw organic cacao nibs
1/2 C raisins
You can just mix the whole lot together, but I like to put the nuts in the food processor first and pulse a few times just to break them up a bit.
The other thing about being raw and vegan is to make sure you do get enough protein in, and avoiding the carb rich snacks like bread and biscuits.
So I now keep a bowl of trail mix handy in the kitchen and snack away on this during the day. Works wonders.
A small bag of trail mix would be a brilliant option for kid's lunch box!
