Easy Travel Recipe: Healing Trail Mix
Practicing healthy eating habits while traveling is essential to maintain your weight and health. Packing the right kinds of snacks in your luggage and travel bags offer healthy options when you are surrounded by junk food at airports, hotels and business meetings.
Dr. Tom Potisk provides the recipe for a nutrient-packed snack that complements his book, “Whole Health Healing: The Budget Friendly Natural Wellness Bible for All Ages.”
Healing Trail Mix
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
- 1 cup unsalted walnuts
- 1 cup carob chips
- 1 /4 teaspoon sea salt
Why is it healing?
Healing demands specific nutrients like these for cellular rebuilding, balanced body chemistry and optimum organ function. For example, the raisins are high in fiber, naturally sweet, and loaded with antioxidants. The walnuts contain essential oils, such as omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. The cranberries are anti-bacterial. The sea salt is a healthier alternative than conventional salt because sea salt contains many minerals. The carob is a great chocolate alternative containing three times the calcium and no caffeine. This recipe is overall a great balance of protein, carbs, healthy fats and fiber. It also has a low glycemic index.
