Low Carb Trail Mix

Low Carb Trail Mix

This is just one possibility, of course.

  • 1 cup roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup raw or roasted almonds
  • 1 cup pumpkin or squash seeds
  • 2 oz unsweetened coconut
  • ½ cup raisins (loosely-packed, i.e. don’t cram in as many as possible)

Nutritional Information: This should make about 16 servings of ¼ cup each. Each serving will have 6.5 grams of effective carbohydrate and 3.5 grams of fiber. If you make the same mix without the raisins, assuming 14 servings, each will have 4 grams of effective carbohydrate and 3 grams of fiber.

Other Good Choices For Trail Mix

  • Sunflower seeds
  • Filberts (hazelnuts)
  • Walnuts
  • Soy nuts
  • Other nuts and seeds, but check the labels for carbs

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
