Nut Free Snack Mix: A Healthy Summer Treat

Summer is ALMOST here, and boy have we been busy. When the warm weather hits, it means that I immediately want to:
  • Grill on the porch
  • Go to the pool
  • Go to the beach
  • Plan fun summer trips
  • Exercise/run outside
  • Eat outside
  • Go outside all the time
  • Did I say go outside?
Amazingly, I've accomplished most of these goals within the past few weeks, despite working inside 40 hours/week. We visited family at the beach over Memorial Day weekend (which explains my missed blog post - oops) and we got to enjoy the beginnings of true summer fun.

We got our toes sandy and picked shells on the beach. I biked a few miles to the beach with my cousin on a beautiful woodsy trail. We ate watermelon by the pool and soaked up the sun with family. I didn't want it to end!

Since summer means more travel, trips to the pool/beach and fun with family, it also means that I need more portable food allergy friendly snack ideas. You know, something you can throw in your bag and not worry about it.

I recently discovered the blessing of Gerbs Gourmet Seeds. Gerbs is a company all about Allergen Friendly Natural Foods. 

Just our style!

Gerbs' certainly fulfills a need for bulk nut-free snack foods and seeds. I can't buy from the bins at Whole Foods or other stores due to cross-contact risks. So, I've been ordering all my goodies from Gerbs instead. 

I threw together this BEAUTIFUL and DELICIOUS nut free snack mix with all my new goodies from Gerbs. 

I think I could even call it HEALTHY too if I make sure not to eat too much of it.

I used all of these ingredients to make my nut free snack mix.

Well, there's really NO recipe. It's just a matter of including all your favorite healthy snacks together in one bowl. Mix and EAT!

I hope you enjoy this tasty, portable and easy summer treat. The best part about snack mix is that you can use any of your favorite ingredients to make a healthy treat.  

I'm posting this on the Real Food Recipe Round-up.

Enjoy the sunshine for those of you who have it! Here are the ingredients I used for this nut free snack mix!
