New favorite thing!
One of the foods I miss most when I'm eating really raw vegan is granola. But some time ago, I realized that grain- and wheat-based (read: gluten-filled) foods make my body sick: swollen, achy joints, zero energy, painful muscles and a foggy head. So in trying to avoid that overarching craptastic feeling, I've said a sad sayonara to my old favorite granola trail mixes.
Go Hunza to the rescue again! I discovered their line of Raw Mulberry Walnut Granola last week, and it's cinnamony-delicious, walnut- and almond-based, sweetened with agave nectar, and best of all, totally gluten-free. Gorgeous. (Full ingredient list: mulberries, walnuts, agave, apricot kernels, dates, almonds, cinnamon, Himalayan salt.) Easy to make on your own, too, I imagine, if you're feeling industrious and/or poor.
Pick some up. The Pumpkin Seed flavor is pretty killer, too.
