LOOK: These Local Trail Mixes Will Make You Go, Grow, and Glow

I am a huge fan of junk food, and it’s really hard to get it out of my system. It’s probably because when I’m working for hours on end, I love munching on something crunchy and tasty. Don’t we all? But now I’m ready to say no to junk food in the long run, and I’ve found healthier alternatives to snack on.

Nuts & Glory is a local food business that specializes in healthy munchies that offers a specific function with each variant.

The woman behind this venture, Marla Fae Laureano, only started with selling her products to her friends and family in May 2014, and then she eventually decided to join pop-up markets and bazaars to share her tasty snacks with more Filipinos.

“I have always been fond of culinary and I have always liked the idea of creating something then letting the world experience it. I want my craft to be experienced by as much people as possible, be it with art or food. In this case food,” she shares with WhenInManila.com.

Her main products are her trail mixes which have the Go, Grow, and Glow variants. You can have a bit of all your food groups just while snacking!

The Go mix is packed with energizing nutrients–perfect for those who are always on-the-go. It’s got rolled oats, pretzel bits, raisins, seeds, and more. I love that it’s got such a sweet and flavorful taste to it, and those rolled oats really add such a nice texture to each handful.

For growing kids like me (I’m kidding, I’m small and will remain small), there’s the Grow mix which mainly has varied nuts. What I love about this mix is that there’s a pretty splash of color thanks to the candy-coated chocolate. A huge plus for when you want to get your kids to eat healthier and they need an extra nudge to go for it.

And in this world of skincare routines, it also helps to glow from the inside out. So, Nuts & Glory also offers the Glow variant which really just gets you great health. It’s got a mix of nuts, dried fruits, and chocolate chips! I love how it’s got the perfect balance of sweetness and saltiness.

Aside from the trail mixes (PHP 80 – 240), there are also healthy cookies and chocolate bars you can try. You can also watch out for limited products during holidays.
