Accidental Brilliance Superfood + Supplement Series...Hunza Raisins
Grown in the Hunza region of the Himalayas, golden Hunza raisins are one of my favorite sweet treats, these guys put any other raisin to shame. They are cultivated from ancient fertile soils irrigated with Himalayan glacier water and that's what makes all the difference. It is well known that this mineral rich water is high in iron, calcium, copper and gold. The raisins are hand-picked, sun-dried and known as the most delicious raisins in the world. And another really neat fact, the Hunza people are the healthiest, longest living people in the world. When they were studied, the only difference in their diet is they do not consume any animal fats and they eat a diet very rich in fresh or dried fruits and nuts. Pretty interesting right ?
* you can find hunza raisins at Whole Foods in their bulk department or most healthfood stores.
