Easy and Delicious Superfood Trail Mix Recipe

 Store in an air tight jar.

 One of my favorite snacks of all time include some concoction of nuts with dried fruit.  I literally eat them daily, whether they are in the form of a lara bar, nut butter, or trail mix, they are my go-to snack of choice.  Nuts are filling, satisfying, nutritious, help curb cravings, and are full of amazing and healthful properties, such as, monounsaturated fat (healthy fat), protein, fiber and antioxidants. Dried fruit also has its benefits. Although each fruit is unique, most are full of blood pumping iron and vital minerals and vitamins.

Some of my favorites 

Goji Berries grow on an evergreen shrub from China and have been used for centuries for their various health benefits…

  • protect the liver
  • help eyesight
  • improve sexual function and fertility
  • strengthen the legs
  • boost immune function
  • improve circulation
  • promote longevity

White Mulberries are native to China and Turkey and also have been used for centuries for…

  •  controlling insulin levels in those who are Diabetic
  • have high blood pressure
  • hyperglycemia
  • heart disease
  • high cholesterol
  • nourish the blood
  • treat anemia (they contain 23% iron!)
  • fight fatigue

This mix I through together is packed full of vital nutrients that will provide our bodies with what is craves… mega nutrition!  Plus it is delicious!
