I’m late I’m late for a very important date -no time to say hello. Goodbye. I’m late! I’m late! I’m late! If you are on the run or on the road or indeed just sitting at home these trail mixes make the perfect summer snack! They are packed with luscious fruit and nut combinations loaded with vitamins,minerals and bursting with flavour.
The one in the picture was for our friend Alice -its got pecans, macademias, goji berries, cacao nibs, papaya, cashews, mullberries and incan berries !
Just to see who the star ingredients of this mix are :
Raw Cacao: fruity and nutty and straight from Oaxaca Mexico high in antioxidants and loaded with minerals!
The Incan berry : high in phosphorous, vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B6, and B12. They are also extremely high in protein (16%) for a fruit. Sweet and tarty flavour -make it one of my faves!
The Papaya : abundant in enzymes- great for digestion (meaning it rejuvenates and balances bacteria in the gut!) an excellent source of vitamin C, rich in carotene (great for tanning!).
The Pecan : clinical research shows pecans may help prevent coronary disease and gallstones, help lower cholesterol, aid in weight loss and support prostate health. Pecans are also loaded with antioxidants and more than 19 vitamins and minerals including vitamin E.
The Mullberry : besides being utterly sweet & delicious it enriches the blood and yin. It can be used to treat dizziness, tinnitus, insomnia and premature graying of hair.
The Goji berry : has been used for 6,000 years by herbalists in China, Tibet and India to: protect the liver, help eyesight , improve sexual function and fertility, strengthen the legs, boost immune function, improve circulation, promote longevity.
The Cashew : They contain healthy mono-unsaturated fats,magnesium, and copper which help prevent heart disease, promote strong bones, and give you energy!
