Sweet & Spicy Trail Mix

This is the most delicious trail mix I have ever tasted. I soaked and dehydrated the nuts and seeds which increased the availability of the nutrients and removed the enzyme inhibitors as well as some of the phytic acid (anti-nutrients). I then added some flax seeds, shredded coconut, stevia, Himalayan salt and cayenne pepper. Yummmmmy!

Soak for 24 hours
Soak for 8 hours
Pumpkin Seeds
Sunflower Seeds
Then add
Shredded coconut
Cayenne pepper
Himalayan Salt

And dehydrate for 24 hours or so. Enjoy!!
