BEST HEALTHY TRAIL MIX
Chocolate Chips, such as stevia-sweetened chocolate chips (no sugar)
Dried Seaweed, such as Hijiki, Arame, or Nori (see TIPS)
DIRECTIONS: Proportions can be divided into 2/3 nuts and seeds and 1/3 fruit and chocolate chips with a handful of the dried seaweed. Mix it up!
TIPS: Dried seaweed can be found in the bulk sections of organic coops or in the Asian section of most supermarkets. In a world where almost everything is labeled a "superfood", seaweed, aka sea vegetables, are truly a superior food in terms of mineral and nutrient density. Alternate between different types of seaweeds to get more variety of flavor and nutrients, such a Hijiki, Arame, and Nori.
