Healthy Trail Mix

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Since starting my Insanity workout program, I have been really conscious of what I snack on, eating only what helps fuel my body for those insane workouts at night. These snacks also help to fill my hunger between my main meals, since I try to eat every three or four hours during the day. Since I work all day, it is easy for me to keep track of what I snack on. I have always brought healthier snacks with me to work, such as yogurt and fruits, but really wanted to increase some healthy nutrients as well (and besides, yogurt gets boring after a while!). So I purchased a few raw, unsalted nuts and bring a handful of them to work now, as well as dried apricots.

Nuts are so healthy for your diet. They provide your body with the nutrients it needs every day. Nuts are rich in dietary fibre, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids, unsaturated fats and antioxidants. I make sure to pack them for easy convenience at work or on my long commute home after work. Plus I eat a few slices of dried apricots due to the high concentration of iron they have.
