We all know that Snack Attack feeling!
My friend shared this great idea with me. Whenever you feel hungry – like you want some sort of a sweet treat, mix together equal parts:
- goji berries
- cocoa nibs
- Brazilian nuts
- sunflower seeds
- pumpkin seeds
in a big glass jar, shake and grab a handful – or two (maximum is two!) And your cravings will be gone!
I’m sure you could try different ingredients, like walnuts (brain food), cashews, almonds, coconut flakes, cranberries, whole cacao beans, etc. But since my friend is such a great researcher, I think she might have specific reasons for each of her selections!
I like to do a mix something like this for my husband to keep in his briefcase so he’s not tempted to have processed food snacks at the office! It’s also great to have a mix like this on long road trips. If I’m driving I always like a constant supply of snacks to help me keep awake and paying attention!
