Raw food trail mix has got to be one of the most easy to make and satisfying healthy snacks. Don’t grab that junk food. Instead fuel your body and mind with this great combination. As long as you have all of the ingredients at home this is so easy to make. Yes you may need to take a trip to the health food store to find some of the ingredients. If you really don’t have the time that is okay too. You will be able to find packaged trail mix at the health food store as well.
One thing that you want to make sure you look at is the ingredients. Don’t be fooled. All things that are stated to be healthy are not always so.
Take a look at the ingredients. If it has:
- added colour
- or anything else that you don’t recognize don’t buy it.
From my experience I can usually find some really great products when they are raw. Most raw food will not have anything else added to the product. Yes it might be a little bit pricier but it is worth it.
Be creative with your trail mix. Try new dried fruits and nuts. A little piece of chocolate in there is also great. Here are some photos from a talk I did on raw food. I like mine to be flavoured with a little bit of sea salt and spices. However you can have them plain as well.
This one includes hemp seeds, goji berries, raw chocolate, sacha seeds, hazelnuts, almonds. Massaged with extra virgin coconut oil, sea salt and cayenne pepper.
These were made for an event sampling so you don’t need the little cups. However when you make your own make sure to store them in an airtight container. One that is great for traveling or going on the road because that is when we are mostly likely going need the trail mix. What is your favourite easy raw food snack?
