Trail Mixes are awesome because they contain mostly nuts, which are a great source of protein and healthy fats. Nuts are full of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated, both are healthy fats and are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. 

Make sure to watch your protein sizes when snacking on these tasty mixes. I store my trail mix in a mason jars when I’m ready to snack I measure out 3-4 tbs and place it in a small bowl, its about 170 calories per serving. Trail Mix can be tricky, they are good for you and easy to over eat.

Classic Trail Mix

1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup salted peanuts
1/4 cup cranberries or raisins
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container

Monkey Mix

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup whole roasted almonds
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup banana chips broken in half
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container


Lentil Trail Mix

1 cup uncooked red lentils
1/2 cup raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1/2 cup roasted salted sunflowers seeds
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cups diced apricots
1/8 tsp sea salt
*grain free trail mix
Soak lentils in 4 cups of water for 4-6 hours, soaking reduces the gas and bloating effects
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, drain and rinse lentils well, spread on 12×9 rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle with salt
