Quick and Healthy Snack


Quick and Healthy SnackOne of my pet peeves about health food stores is the trail mix they sell.

Most of it is just repackaged junk food. Many of the trail mixes contain added sugar, candy, gluten and other sketchy ingredients.

Even some of the better looking ones contain way to much dried fruit. This equates to a lot of sugar. Even though it’s natural, it is still lots of sugar, which is not good for someone trying to be healthy.

Problems with Trail MixThe best trail mix varieties contain RAW nuts and a moderate amount of fruit, with no added sugar. Sometimes these can be hard to find or way expensive.

This video shows a quick, healthier option. check it out below. Please share and comment!

Super Quick and Healthy Snack, Raw Food


Super Quick and Healthy Snack Ingredient List

  • Raw mixed nuts. Does not contain peanuts which can be problematic for some people.
  • Mulberries, not sprayed with any pesticides.
  • 1/2 Organic apple, sliced

Fruit and nutSubstitute whatever fruit you want for the apple and mulberry. Pick something fresh, local and in season.

Here is a tip: If you are not going to eat the apple right away, rub a bit of fresh lemon juice over the apple slices to keep them from turning brown.

If you want a more portable trail mix that you can store for a longer period of time, you could make your own trail mix. This will give you better quality control over the ingredients. Get a variety of your favorite nuts and some dried fruit like raisins. Just go easy on the dried fruit to keep the sugar content low.

Happy Trails!
