- 1/2 cup goji berry and raw cocoa nib mix (I use Power foods which is sold in organic and health food shops)
- ¾ cup mixed seeds; Sunflower and pumpkin
- ¾ cup raw almonds
- ½ cup brazil, hazel or walnuts
Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
Trail mix is super easy to make yourself, and by making it yourself you can control the amounts of ingredients.
Trail mix is great to have before exercise.
Cocoa nibs are rich in magnesium and free from the sugar and dairy convential chocolate chips in retail trail mixes contain. They are bitter, but this is evened out by the goji berries. The magnesium is great for healthy mood and reduces cramps after exercise.
Pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds are rich in zinc and protein, making them great for immunity and a healthy mood.
Feel free to change the ingredients if you wish, but try not to add too much dried fruit (too high in sugar) and if you do, but it organic or un-sulphured (as this can can allergies and asthma).
