Nature's Fuel: Cacao Trail Mix

Your Trail Mix Just Got Better!

In a world full of food choices, we are faced with making the best decisions for ourselves and our families. Sometimes it can feel like a daunting task when we as a society are challenged with so much misinformation and confusion around health. There are processed foods at every turn. Artificial colorings and flavorings, GMOs, and all that. Eat this, we are told, don't eat that. It's hard to know what's truly good for us. And what we should avoid. 

While personal health is different for "every body," enriching our diet with whole foods that are rich in nutrients and antioxidants is a great way to begin supporting optimal health. Dark chocolate appears high up on the whole foods list, and it doesn't get any more WHOLEsome or purer than hand-peeled whole Keith's Cacao beans. Cacao is unrefined dark chocolate. It is an adaptogen and superfood packed with heart-healthy compounds for sustained energy, mental clarity, and focus. Cacao is a natural performance enhancer, making it a helpful kitchen staple and a great "on-the-go" snack.  

This versatile trail mix recipe is low in sugar and packed with nutrients, including dried fruits, nuts, seeds, and the world's purest CHOCOLATE – hand-peeled Cacao beans! The recipe is designed to keep you moving through your busy day with sustained energy and whole-body nourishment. Whether you're on the move or on an adventure, Keith's Cacao is here to support you wherever you are in life! Try swapping out different fruits and nuts for a personalized take on this classic, and be sure to tag @keithscacao and show us how you stay grounded on the move!

"Whatever it is you are drawn to - wilderness expeditions, world travel, rock climbing, mountain biking, surfing, or any other adventure, big or small - this is the perfect time to use Ceremonial Cacao to tune out of the mundane and into a life of vim and vigor."
