I am trying to think of some more stuff to add to my trail mix. I have allergies to tree nuts and flax. I can eat peanuts but am not allowed to take them to my workplace. I also have a corn allergy so many kinds of crackers and cereals are off-limits. And I try to eat healthy stuff not junk
My current usual afternoon snack is about 3/4 cup dry cereal (Shreddies, Oat Squares etc. I have 2 or 3 kinds which I vary) mixed with a spoonful of raisins and a spoonful of soy nuts for protein. I am getting a little tired of the soy nuts though
I would love some other options for add-ins to a HEALTHY trail mix, especially protein options, that fit in with the above restrictions (no tree nuts, no peanuts except on weekends, no flax, no corn).
So far, I have though of:
- Sunflower seeds. Are these healthy? Will they provide any protein or good nutrition?
- Pumpkin seeds. Same question, don't know much about them and whether you can buy them ready-made.
Other than that, I have no ideas. Suggestions?
