If you haven’t tried the Whole30 diet at least once, have you even lived?? Anyone who truly cares about their health should take a serious look at this diet that cuts out all forms of sugar, wheat, dairy, and legumes. So what else is left for you to eat? A whole bunch of meat, fruit, and veggies. But let me tell you, the first couple days I feel like I am starving!! I’m lacking fat in my diet and am craving something sweet (most of which I can’t have). So Trail Mix seems like the perfect go to, until you realize peanuts are a legume and most varieties of trail mix have at least some form of sugar in either chocolate or added to the dried fruit.
Here’s the recipe I came up with browsing our local Lidl shelves. I’m all about eating healthy on a budget.
- 16 oz Jumbo Seedless Raisin Medley
- 6 oz Dried Apricot
- 10 oz Just Seeds Unsalted Seed Blend
- 8 oz Roasted and Salted Cashew Halves and Pieces
- 12 oz Just Nuts Salted Roasted Almonds
- 6 oz Shelled Pecans
Mix it all together with your hands. Then, because I like to reuse and recycle, I just packaged it in the same resealable bags the ingredients came in. I’ll bring a bag to munch on at work!
