What you need to create your own Nature’s Delicacies healthier trail mix
You can play around with the ingredients and amounts – there’s no wrong way to do it! This is also a great way to use up little bits of nuts, seeds and other ingredients you have on hand! To create this trail mix we’ve used our Nãkd Nibbles, Fruit Bowl Yogurt Flakes and Fruit Bowl Fruit Peelers instead of dried fruit for some added sweetness and taste!
Nuts – nuts are packed with heart-healthy fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals. The mix of protein, fiber and omega 3 fatty acids in nuts makes them a great snack as they help keep you full for longer. You can choose one type of nut or a variety to put in your trail mix, depending on what you like. Make sure to choose raw or dry roasted nuts and not those roasted in oils or coated in sugars.
Seeds – Like nuts, seeds are a great source of healthy plant-based fats, antioxidants, minerals, fiber and even protein. Pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds are a trail mix favourite, just be sure to avoid spiced or coated seeds as they have unnecessary sugars and oils.
