1/2 Photos of Resveratrol Crunch-N-Munch
The French Paradox,,,the observation that the French suffer a relatively low incidence of coronary heart disease even though having a diet pretty rich in saturated fats. It is thought that their saving grace is coming from all the red wine that they drink. Red wine contains resveratrol, a natural substance that has been linked to the prevention of many diseases including cancer and also to healthy life expansion. I love red wine but I also wanted to see what other foods contain large amounts of the stuff!! Surprisingly, peanuts!! I decided to put together a trek mix using some of the tasty resveratrol winners!!! I find that I enjoy a mix of fruits and nuts with a little salt and a treat like chocolate rather than just a bowl of just nuts or just fruit. I used salted peanuts to give this mix that hint of salt and balance but you can definitely use raw peanuts along with all of these other raw ingredients. I hope you like the mix!

- 1Rinse your fruit and dry it completely on soft kitchen towels. (the fruit must be dry before mixing with the chocolate and nuts to keep them from getting soggy).

- 3Add the walnuts, peanuts, and dark chocolate and then gently toss around to coat everything in the salt from the peanuts.
- 4Store in the fridge and enjoy a handful for dessert or a snack!
