I won't lie to you, all this travel has left me without much time to create new recipes to share. While I love all my adventures and I am excited to see where they will take me next, I am also looking forward to getting back into the kitchen and creating some edible magic (and no, that does not mean pot brownies, despite my trips to both Denver AND Seattle).
For today however, I am going to share one of my favorite snack mixes with you. It is simple but extremely effective for curbing that "oh my god if I don't eat something I will die" feeling. I won't lie, this snack mix came together out of absolute desperation. When I went on my candida diet my 'quick fix' options were all but obliterated. Granola bars were no longer an option, fruit was off the table and normal nut mixes were all made with ingredients I could no longer enjoy without feeling like death was knocking at my door (too dramatic?). And so, I give you my nuts (insert giggles here).
What you will need:
1/4 cup raw walnuts
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raw cashews (optional)
1/4 cup puffed quinoa
Himalayan sea salt to taste
Combine all ingredients and sprinkle with sea salt... Seriously... that's it. If you are feeling twirly and you want a sweet treat, toast the mix in a little coconut oil and raw honey... it is delicious! But you have to watch it carefully so it doesn't burn (also allow it to cool fully before eating it).
I don't know why I love this mix so much, I just do. It is satisfying and delicious, also it has saved my ass from fainting of hunger (or having a hangry outburst) on many an occasion.
