Too many meetings and not enough time for lunch? Hitting a slump in the afternoon? Then this mix is for you! Make up small snack-sized baggies to go.
3 T. Rice, Corn, or Wheat Chex (Wholegrain Cheerios works but may change carb count. I use Rice and Corn Chex for gluten-free)
organic raisins or low sugar Craisins (try to get no added sugars or oils when possible)
7 - 15 pieces raw almonds
1 T. sunflower or pumpkin seeds (no salt or other flavorings) Use these in place of almonds for nut-free, or use 7 almonds with 1/2 T. seeds to lower fat content.
Directions: Line up baggies on counter (My hubby likes full-sized baggies with snack-size baggie amount for less spillage). Put in cereal, fruit, seeds and/or almonds. Shake up each baggie. You can spit a baggie in 1/2 for smaller pick-me-up to keep added calories lower in your day. Ready to go when you are!
