Not Your Average (Fall) Trail Mix

Shamera Robinson

IMG_4899.jpg

Everyone is looking for healthy snack ideas and we have one that is perfect for fall!

Now... what comes to mind when you see the words "trail mix." I'll tell you what I see... some dry peanuts and dusty M&M's that I wouldn't touch unless I was in the midst of a famine. But it's time to remix the trail mix!

Trail mix is like old-faithful. It's often mentioned as a great snack because it is an easy way to hit those salty-crunchy-sweet cravings, while still getting adequate protein, fiber, and nutrients. *insert yelling emoji* BUT IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE BORING! I got so caught up on the traditional version of trail mix that I forgot I could simply make my own. 

Don't worry, I soon remembered how boss I am... and then proceeded to make my own.  

So... what's in the Not Your Average (Fall) Trail Mix?

Apple Slices - forget all the raisins. Fall is the perfect time to enjoy apples while they're in season. Don't sleep on the dried apple rings!

Dark Chocolate Shavings - Cocoa beans, the base for most chocolate, are rich in flavanols that can help your body fight against heart disease. Dark chocolate has a higher cocoa content than milk chocolate, which means more heart-healthy flavanols. (I tend to pick chocolate with at least 70% cocoa)

Pumpkin Seeds - It might be time to throw out the carved pumpkins, but I hope you kept those seeds! Pepitas (widely known as pumpkin seeds) are high in protein, magnesium, and zinc. Just roast them in a bit of olive oil and sea salt for a good munch.

Cinnamon Roasted Pecans - C'mon. What more can I say?

 Crispy Chipotle Chickpeas - You can't have a trail mix without a crunch! Chickpeas are a good source of plant-based protein and fiber, but the crispy chipotle version takes them to a new level.

Life (and trail mix) is only as boring as you make it.

Recipe Remix: Peach Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Shamera Robinson

caramelized-peach-quinoa-breakfast-bowl-8.jpg

Clearly, we’re on a quinoa kick this month!  Our Recipe Remix features the stunning Caramelized Peach Quinoa Breakfast Bowl from Lindsay's blog (The Lean Green Bean).

When you think of quinoa, what comes to mind? …something savory, right? Quinoa is typically used to replace rice (and other grains) in some of our favorite dinner dishes.

But you can’t limit greatness! On Saturday, we will show you how to switch out your oatmeal for a warm and fruity quinoa bowl.  Incorporating quinoa into your morning routine adds protein that can help keep you full and focused throughout the day. This swap is definitely worth a try!

We like to think of this one as… healthy peach cobbler for breakfast.  We will be live on Facebook and IG this Saturday (9/23) to show you how we put our spin on things. Until then, find the full recipe here.

 Hurry up and find us on social media. We want to hear from you!

Sweet Cayenne Grilled Carrots

Shamera Robinson

Raw carrots. Roasted carrots. Boiled carrots. I can't be the only one who gets tired of eating the same ol' thing! I wasn't ready to give up on carrots, but I desperately needed something new.

So... this whole carrot hotdog craze caught my attention. (Yes, ppl are putting whole carrots in a hotdog bun!) Let me be clear... I believe there are certain foods that shouldn't be touched. If I'm going to have a hot dog, then please let me enjoy my hot dog. BUT... it did inspire me to heat up the (Foreman) grill. I threw my carrots in a brown sugar & cayenne glaze and the result was surprisingly delicious.

Eating vegetables is great, but eating food you enjoy is also important. If you're feeling bold, then try these Sweet Cayenne Grilled Carrots.

Ingredients:

  • Carrots (1 bunch)
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne

Garnish with parsely

Directions:

  1. Heat grill (or grill pan) to medium-high heat. While grill is heating up - wash, peel, and cut carrots diagonally into ¼-inch-thick slices.

  2. Combine olive oil, brown sugar, salt, pepper, garlic, ginger, and cayenne in one bowl. Add carrots - toss and coat evenly.

  3. With tongs, place carrots on grill rack. Grill for 5-7 minutes, until the carrots develop sear marks and begin to soften. Flip, cover, and grill carrots for another 5-7 minutes.

Carrots should be tender with a hint of crunch in the center!

Don't be afraid to try something different

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Clusters

Shamera Robinson

If you know me, then you know I am always looking for a new guilt-free sweet treat. Imagine my excitement when I stumbled across this recipe for Salted Dark Chocolate and Cherry Almond Clusters. Only 4 ingredients? And a 5min prep time?! Sounds like my kind of dessert. 

I didn't have cherries in the fridge, so I decided to improvise. Thanks to some local strawberries and shredded coconut, I made the best Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Clusters.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup fresh strawberries, washed and chopped
  • ¼ cup raw whole almonds, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup dark chocolate morsels
  • 1 teaspoon coconut flakes

Directions:

Start by combining the chopped strawberries and chopped almonds in a small bowl. Place dark chocolate morsels in a separate bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds, stirring with a rubber spatula. Repeat 2-3 times until dark chocolate is fully melted.

Pour the dark chocolate into the small bowl with chopped strawberries and almonds. Stir the mixture with rubber spatula until thoroughly coated. Using a tablespoon, scoop out 2 tablespoons of the chocolate mixture and place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and enjoy!

Chocolate covered strawberries are cool and all.... BUT THESE CLUSTERS!

Love,
