WARM SPICED NUTS

Commitments to family, work, school, friends, and house chores can -literally-  make us NUTS! I find myself more frequently on the go, than not, and faced with temptations of fast food and drive throughs. My solution is my warm spiced nuts recipe! The tastes satisfies my cravings and there is no risk making a mess of myself. This snack is loaded with protein and fiber which both help to make me feel satiated.  The healthy fat found in almonds AND walnuts support my heart, bones, tissues, hormones, and my brain.  And this   recipe is versatile, too! If you want a savory snack, sub out cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves, for granulated garlic, basil, garlic, pepper, and rosemary!

Ingredients:

3 cups organic almonds

1 cup organic walnuts

1 cup organic pumpkin seeds

*Swap in any nuts or seeds you want!

1 tbsp. organic ginger

Store nuts in a cookie tin or container with air circulation. Eat within 2 weeks.
