Trail Mix - great healthy snacking

Healthy snack - make your own Trail Mix

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.
Then mix.

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!

Bon apetit
