Awesome Activated Trail Mix- 70g
Marginal gains (small incremental improvements in any process adding up to a significant improvement when they are all added together) are not just the preserve of track cycling. Here at Totally Wonderfuel Towers, we’re always looking at ways to get the most out of our nutrition (as well as our cycling)- and we reckon that any discerning performance director would definitely add ‘activation’ to the marginal gains shortlist. Think of it as the nutritional equivalent of ceramic bearings….
There’s no doubt that nuts, seeds and legumes are nutritional powerhouses, but the presence of phytic acid (the major storage form of phosphorous), combined with our inability to metabolise it successfully, means that some of the goodness in these tasty morsels is simply not available to us. Sad face :-(
The good news is that soaking nuts and seeds in salty water and kick-starting germination- a process called ‘activation’- reduces the phytic acid content significantly and helps to unlock their full potential, making nuts and seeds more nutritious and more digestible. Using a slow dehydration process afterwards enhances the flavour and adds extra crunch, making them quite irresistible. Yay! Smiley face :-)
Totally Wonderfuel’s twist on traditional trail mix combines activated organic cashews, brazils, almonds and pumpkin seeds with a fabulous blend of exotic berries and juicy raisins and chunks or organic dark chocolate, all seasoned with a hint of Himalayan pink salt. Super for snacking, perfect on porridge, a whopper of a salad topper.Let’s face it, there are loads of things most of us could do to improve our nutrition- we reckon our Awesome Activated Trail Mix is worth 1% and then some. Step away from the bearings…
