Hi folks. I am one of those people that need a snack in between meals. I have a couple of Nut mixes you might enjoy and or change to your liking.
I want to start with not one of my favorite nuts, but is healthy to eat.
Almonds are the only nut that have an alkalizing effect in the body. We need a proper balance of acid and alkalis in the body to feel good,
Almonds are a good source of protein, vitamin e, b complex vitamins and a good source of minerals.
Cashews are high in calories but very yummy. They are a good source of selenium and I prefer them over Brazil nuts in which you can easily overdo your

Selenium is beneficial to skin health,
Okay so far I have listed two nuts.
I mixed these two with wasabi flavored dried pea snacks and little sesame sticks and have enjoyed the savory treat with a wasabi kick during my long
bus rides to and fro work and back.
On a sweeter note, a simple mix of pecans, raisins and dark chocolate bits can help one through the day.
Pecans are a source of ellagic acid which ''Has the ability to inhibit DNA binding of certain carcinogens, thus offering the human body protection
