Mixed raw nuts make for a great healthy snack, especially on the run.  In fact I always keep a small stash in a Tupperware container in my handbag when I am out and about for those moments I may get stuck with no food OR faced with unhealthy options, to tide me over and avoid getting hypoglycemic ( low blood sugar levels)  By snacking on raw nuts, you will be providing your body with the goodness of essential fatty acids, slow burning carbohydrate and plant proteins, so they are a perfect snack for knocking those sugar cravings on the head.  The only down side of nuts is if you eat too many, they can impact in your absorption of essential trace minerals, thanks to containing a substance known as ‘phytic acid’  But there is a way to  reduce the level of phytic acid in nuts, by a process known as ‘activation’.  ‘Activating your nuts’, so to speak…..will enhance the nutritional benefits of nuts, and is a simple process if you make the time to do a big batch at a time  at a time.  Check out the recipe here

What you’ll need… 

  • 1/2 cup goji berries (optional)
  • 1/2  – ¾ cup coconut flakes, toasted
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • ½ cup Brazil nuts
  • ½ cup cashew nuts
  • ½ cup walnuts ( reduce to ¼ if you have an under active thyroid or substitute with pecans)
  • ½ cup raw unsalted macadamia nuts ( optional)

How to make… 

  • Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • For a real energy boost you can crumble in pieces of 85% dark chocolate into the miox – great if you are going on a long walk or hike.

Sally’s Tip… 

  • Store in an airtight container, away from direct sunlight for up to two weeks.  Be sure to use organic raw nuts and seeds to avoid the chemical sprays. Remember peanutsare OFF the program.

Serves –  8, Around a handful maximum per day
