Tropical Trail Mix can appear to be a healthy, great tasting snacking option; however, the additives and preservatives which are often added to the mix can make it deceptively unhealthy. As with most packaged foods, it is important to check the ingredient list. This bite-sized snack usually contains an array of nuts and dried fruit: pineapple, purple and golden raisins, banana chips, peanuts, almonds, mangoes, dates, honey, papaya, sunflower seeds, coconut, apricot, cranberries, cashews, macadamia nuts, and even milk chocolate candies. Sam's Choice, Snak King, Emerald, Energy Club, Deerfield, Good Sense, and Archer Farms all make this tasty variety. Delicious gourmet and organic varieties are available from Tropical Treasures, a Hawaiian company, and in many stores and co-ops such as Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and PCC. Look in the bulk foods section for a hefty discount from pre-portioned products.
The perfect combination of crunch, sweetness, and saltiness can be found in this potentially nutritional and beneficial bite. They are especially good foods to take with you for prolonged periods of physical activity such as hiking, biking, and camping. They're light weight and often come in re-sealable jars and bags, making a great addition to any kid's lunch. Roasted nuts contain high levels of protein which allows the body to feel full for a longer period of time. With Tropical Trail Mix in particular, the natural fructose in the dried out fruit gives an instant boost of energy. Many natural and raw food eaters equate eating dry fruit with taking a shot of caffeine. The glycemic index for fruits is much lower than with unnatural sugars, so you won't have that annoying sugar crash as a result of munching on a handful or package of these yummy treats.
Naturally dried apricots, peaches, pears, and bananas have a much more mild impact on blood sugar than do their sugar-coated cousins. Apart from eating a raw foods diet, dehydration is one of the best means for preserving nutritional values, especially vitamins and minerals. The Vitamins A, B, C, D, folic acid, and fiber found in most ripe fruit is nearly as prevalent when the harvest is dried. They are a good source of manganese, potassium, and are often low in cholesterol. The right combination of fruits and nuts can make a wholesome addition to your diet; however, there are a lot of things to look out for to make sure that your purchases are truly nibble worthy.
