Fruit and Nut Trail Mix

Submitted by: IAMRUTHANN
Fruit and Nut Trail Mix

Introduction

I make tasty nut-free trail mixes for healthy snacks. In order to best stabilize blood sugar and provide lasting energy, snacks should be a balance of protein and carbohydrates. Conveniently, this trail mix packs both, along with a healthy dose of omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin C, vitamin E, antioxidants, fiber, and other vitamins and minerals. I like goji berries because they are lower in sugar than other dried fruit, good for those of us that need to watch our sugar intake.

Don't tolerate some of the ingredients I used? No worries! The recipe is really flexible! Remove whatever ingredients you don't tolerate, and add whatever you else you'd like - you can't mess it up. Make it your own. Crunchy, full of flavor, and loaded with nutrients, this trail mix is a lifesaver. Where can it come in handy?

Ingredients

    Almonds, raw, 1 cup
    Brazil nuts, raw, 0.5 cup
    Cashews, raw, 0.5 cup
    Pumpkin seeds, shelled, raw, 1.5 cup
    Sunflower seeds, raw, 1 cup

Directions

Note: Nuts should be raw and unsalted. Dried fruits should be organic (this guarantees no sulphur) and unsweetened.

Wash hands Thoroughly. Cut brazil nuts and apples into smaller pieces. Then put all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. If, usage will be within a few days can divide into 1/3 cup serving sizes and fill snack size bags. Otherwise I recommend storing in glass jars for maximum freshness.
