Snack Mix!

There are times in life when you just get the munchies, and you long for something crunchy and portable to eat. In Fatopia, the snack of choice is some kind of greasy potato or corn chip. That’s all well and good, but it’s not going to get you to Thinlandia!

I have come up with my own version of snack mix that is tasty, nutritious, and easy to make. I’ll even use it as a small meal replacement sometimes if I’m on the go, because it has fruit, grain, nuts, and dark chocolate which, according to Prevention Magazine’s MUFA diet, is actually good for you, especially women over the age of 40!

If I want to just make a single 3/4 cup serving that’s around 205 calories, I’ll use the following single serve recipe. If I want to make it so it’s easy to make a larger batch and grab however much I need, I’ll make the bulk version of the recipe.

Thinlandia Snack Mix
(Single serving)

1/2 cup regular Cheerios
1/8 cup or 2 T Nestle’s Dark Raisinets
1 T All Natural Almond Accents, Honey Roasted flavor (found in the salad section)
1 T Craisins

Mix together. Enjoy!

Bulk version:

4 cups Cheerios
1 cup Nestle’s Dark Raisinets
1/2 cup All Natural Almond Accents, Honey Roasted flavor
1/2 cup Craisins

Makes approximately 6 cups snack mix and is approximately 273 calories per cup, 180 calories for 2/3 cup or 135 calories for 1/2 cup.
