What to do - Mindful Mix
- Grab a plastic bag, collect all the processed food you have and throw it away. If you have something against throwing food away - remember, it's not food, it's junk. Throw it away!
- Find an empty jar with a solid seal to keep any bugs out (I used an old chocolate jar).
- Buy your favorite dried fruits and nuts. Right now I'm using almonds (a nutritional powerhouse full of protein, vitamins and minerals), goji berries (another antioxident superfood), and cranberries. If you need chocolate, use cacao nibs.
- Put in jar and shake.
- Tips: The best nuts are raw. But if you need to break yourself in with your favorite roasted or smoked nuts, go ahead. Walnuts and almonds are particularly good. They're another opportunity to go fair trade and organic. People disparage cranberries for having too much sugar, but I like them and they are still a natural food, so I'm eating them anyway!
