Raw Cocoa Almond and Raisins

living intentions Go Nuts Chocolate Almond RaisingHello. Unfortunately, my post is going to be a bit short today as I've spent a bunch of time tonight trying to figure out why my comment form is misbehaving. Apparently comments aren't always getting posted the first time people click post. So, try clicking an additional time if that happens to you. Also - please email me if you are experiencing this issue, as it will hopefully help me get to the bottom of what is going on (I'm also happy to post your comment for you).

So, even though the posting is a bit short, rest assured the food I picked to blog about today is still a great find and is really yummy. A company by the name of Living Intentions creates this delicious, gently dried raw mix of cocoa, sprouted almonds and raisins called "Gone Nuts" that is really to die for. The vegan and gluten free mix is crunchy and chocolately and even a bit gooey - but in a good way (you can still eat it with your hands without making a mess)! The best part is that the mix is only 103 calories per 28 gram serving, with 4 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber, and 2 grams of protein (so 2 weight watchers points).

The Gone Nuts mix not only tastes good but it has a really pleasing chocolate aroma as well. I'm sure you can imagine, the mix is pretty versatile - I think it makes a perfect low calorie snack or a great topping for yogurt, low calorie cereal, or low calorie ice cream! I know that this company makes other mixes as well (I've seen them at Whole Foods where I bought this one), which I will be sure to blog about in the future (I wanted to get to it today, but unfortunately, I've run out of time)...

Enjoy!
Juliet

Hi! Yep, sorry about that. Last night's blog posting was put together with less time than I would have liked. I bought the Go Nuts in the raw food section at Whole Foods. You should definitely try it. It is really good and just unique enough to be interesting! :)
