Posted by: Rodney, Tuesday, June 19, 2007, 6:24pm
I don't really know how compliant this is but some times you just got to go for it...

I bought everything at Costco

1 bag of pine nuts
1 bag of dried blue berrys
several handfuls of dried cranberry's {those bags are huge so I didn't use all of 'em}
a handful of dark chocolate chips

mix all together and ta da snacks for several weeks and I just dump them back in the bags the stuff came in and have one at the shop and one at home..
what do you think!!

the :B only problem I have is stopping once I start to munch... ;D

I can find apple-juice sweetened dried cranberries here so I'll use those with walnuts. The choc chips are for a treat...I do best without the added sugar though...

what brand are those cramberries, Drea?
Posted by: Drea, Wednesday, June 20, 2007, 1:48pm; Reply: 12
They come from our local health food store...bagged and tagged as apple-juice sweetened cranberries with safflower oil* - *which is only okay for A-secretors.

I do something similar with Ghirardelli double dark choc. chips, dried cherries, pecans and or walnuts, a little bit of dried pineapple.  A little goes a long way!  So good!

I can't eat sugar, and don't have the time right now to make a sugar-free chocolate candy to chip up into a trail mix.  I do eat walnuts, pumpkin seeds and dried fruits, but the chocolate is what makes it SO fine.

Don't listen to Isa about that wicked white chocolate!  :-)  It's the darkest stuff that has all the great health benefits.

I love dried crannberies and blueberries, but haven't found yet any with complient oil for B's. Don't understand why they put oil on them [to keep them soft?]

Well I am glad I started a disscussion on my snack mix.. It got me to look closer at the ingredients of the dried berries. no wonder I was liking the mix so well SUGAR is added to both berries. Humm guess I had better re-group on this shack a little. Thanks again for opening my eyes people.

It's possible to find good dried fruits with no added sugar.  Cranberries, however, are too sour to be eaten unsweetened.  And just watch for sulfur added to dried fruits.
