If you want to succeed on the Full Body Cleanse, your snack game needs to be on point. Great snacks need to contain healthy fats, fiber, protein, and complex carbohydrates. All of these help to keep you full, while providing a slow release of energy. There won’t be sugar spikes and crashes that tend to stem from unhealthy chips or sugary bars. Plus, those snacks don’t fill you up. In fact, when you eat those unhealthy snacks, you end up craving more right after you finish!
This homemade trail mix recipe is completely raw vegan and filled with beneficial superfoods. The chewy goji berries offer beneficial antioxidants that work to fight oxidative stress. Raw almonds are great sources of vitamin E, fiber, magnesium, protein, and healthy fats, and they may even help regulate blood sugar levels. Now, this recipe calls for raisins, but you can’t simply buy whichever raisins you like. Make sure that the raisins do not contain added sugars or preservatives like sulfur dioxide. Lastly, the sunflower and pumpkin seeds offer zinc, magnesium, manganese, and may help to improve heart health. Get to snacking, people!
