Sunfood’s Berry Adventure mix is one of those rare trail mixes that’s shout-from-the-rooftops delicious. Blindingly simple, with only three impeccable and improbable ingredients, it manages to have a perfect balance of flavors and textures. And it’s nutritionally impeccable as well, with raw organic superfoods that will do wonders for your body as well as your tastebuds. Sweet creamy cashews are the perfect foil for two superberries: tart bright tangy chewy goldenberries, redolent of kumquats and roses, and complex earthy gojis, tasting of cherries and black tea. All three together are powerful, bold, subtle, utterly delightful.
Sometimes trail mixes feel random and ill-combined. Sometimes they feel like somebody is trying to use up the dregs of whatever semi-rancid fruits and nuts they’ve got left. Sometimes some of the things in them are really good, but some not-so-good, so after a lot of diligent picking, you’re left with a bag of undesirable bits that never quite get eaten. And sometimes, just sometimes, a trail mix becomes much much more than the sum of its parts, catapulting your tastebuds into new places, giving you the chance to taste foods together that you would’ve never thought to combine, tasting them through a new lens as their best qualities harmonize and contrast to create textural and gustatory brilliance.
These ingredients are all highest-quality, soft and fresh and perfect. (This is a rare quality in trail mixes, as I’ve discovered after years of eating my way through countless vaguely-off blends of nuts and berries and mystery bits.) And as for their nutritional qualities, here are some highlights:
Raw cashews are naturally high in beautifying oleic acid and also contain magnesium, manganese, selenium and zinc. Zinc is a critical mineral for enzyme formation and reproductive health. Magnesium is vital for almost every system in the body; most people are chronically magnesium-deprived.
Goji berries, are considered a complete source of protein and regarded as a top longevity and strength-building food in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
A nutritional powerhouse, golden berries contain vitamins C and A, iron, pectin, beta-carotene, protein, bioflavonoids and niacin. They are said to help maintain a healthy weight, and ward off disease.
This super fruit and raw nut mix is an excellent source of protein and provides you with all eight essential amino acids to help you achieve peak body health. Goji berries also contain 10 other amino acids, which can help your body synthesize protein. Goji and golden berries are also both rich sources of antioxidants, which can help your body ward off harmful free radicals. Additionally, goji berries and the seeds from golden berries contain dietary fiber, which is essential for digestive health.
Sunfood Berry Adventure snack mix provides you with a wonderfully-delicious nutritional boost. It’s perfect for hiking, camping or just sitting at your desk and typing, as we do all too often these days, yearning for the outdoors.
