A healthy alternative to raisins

I have become a raw trail mix junkie.  It’s so easy to carry in my purse and always proves to be energizing when I need a little pick me up.  My favorite mixes have cashews, goji berries, and mulberries.  I’ve never really thought about mulberries before.  I mean, why would you?  They blend in with everything else that’s going on.

The other day it dawned on me that these funny looking little guys might be good on their own.  And since they’re not colorful or very sweet, they would be a healthier treat than raisins.  Wouldn’t you know I was right :)

Mulberry nutrition facts

Serving is 1/3 cup

Read here about all of vitamins and antioxidants that are packing into mulberries.  You can see they’re also surprisingly a source of iron.  Scientific studies have shown potential health effects against cancer, aging and neurological diseases, inflammation, diabetes, and bacterial infections.

Mulberries are just sweet enough to satisfy my mid-day sugar craving and now you know why I don’t feel guilty about eating a handful!
