This is one of the most nutritious snack foods you can make; keep some in Ziploc baggies or Tupperware in your car, at your desk, in your backpack or briefcase - never be without some raw nuts (no roasted or salted nuts allowed – raw is what provides quality nutrition and no gas!).
RAW NUTS (use some or all of these – your choice):
raw hazelnuts (filberts)
raw sunflower seeds
raw pumpkin seeds (‘pepitas’)
raw pinenuts (‘pignolias’)
raw macademia nuts (expensive)
raw cacao nibs
dried Goji berries
dried figs, chopped
* Don’t go overboard on these EXTRAS – think of them as ‘spices’ for your mix, not a source of indulgence.When buying dried fruit, look for ones labeled ‘unsulphured’, as sulfites are chemical preservatives.
Mix whatever combination of nuts and ‘extras’ that suit your taste – each batch you make will have its own personality.
