This is one of my favourite snacks. They’re easy to make, packed with protein & healthy fats while also being low carb, high fibre and a great source magnesium & zinc. At only 160 calories, this recipe will curb any cravings and hold you off until your next meal.
Add seeds to a frying pan over medium heat until you hear them start to pop. Stir them around and turn off heat. Add coconut oil & sea salt (or Herbamare) and let cool. Depending on how many you make, store them in the fridge to keep them fresher longer, as the omega-3 fats are preserved best when cold.
It’s important to watch your serving size when eating nuts and seeds. A small portion is as beneficial and nutrient dense as they are calorie dense, since they contain a lot of healthy fats. It’s easy to overdue it and eat your day in calories with nuts & seeds, so make sure you portion each serving to only 1/4 – 1/2 cup!
