“Health Nut” Mix

health nut mix

Where to even begin with this!?!?!

Do you want to eat something delicious that is good for your muscles, hair, eyes, nails, skin, heart and brain???

Well here you go you “health nut”!

A special mix I made to say Merry Christmas and thank you to my training clients and people who take my classes at the gym!

Here is the run down:

2 cups raw plain almonds

1 c of each of the following:

unsalted peanuts

roasted sunflower seeds

roasted pepitas

dried cranberries or cherries

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tbsp. agave or honey (drizzle all over before mixing)

1 tbsp. cinnamon

Place in large bowl, mix gently with a spoon and scoop out 1/4 c servings into baggies or keep altogether and grab as needed.

Yields: 21   1/4 cup servings

Tips: I find that when I portion out ahead in 1/4 c baggies that really helps. As you may or may not know seeds and nuts are high in calories and fat (good fat) and should be consumed about once a day-a handful or so. I usually keep some sort of nut/seed mix in my bag as emergency food and it also makes for a great pre or after workout boost! Take it hiking, take it on road trips in the car or plane…just make it and take it!

All of these ingredients can be found at your local grocery store. (nothing too fancy!)

So friends….. enjoy, be inspired, take charge, have pride in your health, plan ahead, don’t get caught hungry and put something good in your body that will reflect well on the outside! In this case, be careful if eaten every day your hair may shine, your skin may glow, you may become extremely productive and even see more clearly!!
