This week I happily acquired two new cookbooks (I have a bit of an addiction to them). One with a focus for runners/training/recovery and the other was Giada’s Feel Good Food. I’ve long been a fan of her and her recipes. As I’m embarking on packing and getting my family ready to hit the road this weekend for race that I’m doing ~ I’ve been preparing healthy snacks for the road. I’m not a fan of prepackaged foods. I also eat a lot of nuts, as they are a valuable protein source for me with my vegetarian lifestyle. This recipe grabbed my attention immediately, funny enough I just saw this on her show yesterday, and knew I had to make it. It was easy, I customized it to the nuts/seeds I wanted to use and of course, used less sugar than noted in the original recipe as it wasn’t necessary.
Think of these as a great game day snack or treat to put out this Thanksgiving for a healthy snack option. Also packs well for road trips.
