Healthy Food Snacks

Healthy food snacks can include live plant foods such as properly prepared raw nuts that you can turn into a raw trail mix.

And healthy food snacks that are properly soaked and dried at the right temperature can give you important vitamins and minerals.

How to Properly Prepare Raw Nuts

Some of my favorite snacks are nuts.  However, before I eat nuts especially raw nuts, I will deactivate as many anti-nutrients as possible.

Anti-nutrients are nature's way of protecting a nut.  And deactivating anti-nutrients ensures better digestibility and more nutrition. 

However, it can be a long process and you will have to plan a day or so ahead to complete this necessary procedure before you can safely eat these healthy food snacks.

  1. Basically, you will soak your raw nuts in water for 7 to 12 hours. 
  2. You will also have to add in a certain amount of salt to help deactivate certain anti-nutrients (1 tbsp. of salt per 4 cups of nuts).
  3. Then the nuts need to be rinsed and dried below a certain temperature (116 degrees F is an acceptable temperature for most people) to retain as much nutrients as possible. 

You can then make your own trail mix or use these nuts to make other raw food snacks.

How to Make a Trail Mix

As you can see, there are a variety of nuts, seeds, fruits, and chocolate that you can choose from to put into your trail mix. 

And this is a great snack to have in your car for emergency snacks.

You can also buy or order properly prepared raw nuts these days.  You will find a good variety of soaked and dehydrated nuts as well as cashews at my favorite affiliate US Wellness Meats.
