Ok, this barely qualifies as a recipe, but if it’s so easy, why do we keep buying pre-made trail mix and other mixed nuts? 😉
Here’s a basic recipe you won’t need to buy anymore, because you can make it in 30 seconds for much less! Just make sure your pantry is filled with healthy raw and organic nuts (not toasted, not salted) in order to get the maximum nutritional value. It’s ok if you want to throw in a few roasted nuts once in a while (like cashews), but these should be used sparingly as toasted nuts don’t contain as much nutrients and they generally contain added preservatives on them to slow down the rancid process.
Always make sure you buy organic nuts and dried fruits, otherwise they most likely will contain sulfites and they have a much higher risk of being pasteurized or irradiated.
A yummy snack to keep with you at work, school, or even in your gym locker!
