Note from Joy: So many trail mixes are made to satisfy a sweet tooth, and focus on ingredients like dried fruits, maple syrup and honey. While I love all these things, there are times when it's a craving for saltiness that needs satisfying. Rather than reaching for a bag of potato chips or pretzels, try this great savory trail mix recipe from fellow holistic nutritionist Mandy King.
The almonds and sunflower seeds in this recipe provide lots of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and a dose of vitamin E. The pumpkin seeds add a dose of essential minerals like zinc and iron. This trail mix is perfect for reintroducing some of those important nutrients often missing when we're eating tons of holiday party food.
