Bomb Ass Trail Mix That Takes 10 Seconds

Ohhhhh…you know what’s good? Like, real, real good?

Almonds x coconut flakes.

& then add in a little berry medley, & it’s better than good.

Seriously mind blowing.

So if you’re a health nut, like me, I have a sweet, lil treat for you: toasted coconut x unsalted almond, dried berry trail mix.

I mean…

Here’s my deal with trail mix: I’m not a trail mixie-in-the-car-only-kinda-person. My trail mix has a serious purpose: I put it in 100 calorie Ziplock bags & put it in each of my handbags.

I also put little portion controlled bowls throughout my house. I have them in my kitchen so when I’m cooking I can grab a convenient, healthy snack. I have them in my room by bed so I don’t slam cookies down my throat at midnight. I have them in my living room for friends to snack on because bowls of candy are overrated.

A bowl of nature’s candy is way better:

Some benefits of almonds? Glad you asked.

Sexy, delish unsalted almonds reduce the risk of heart attacks, lower ‘bad’ cholesterol, protect artery walls from damage, build strong bones/teeth, aid in weight loss, nourish the nervous system, & alkalize the body.

This trail mix also obviously includes coconut flakes ( contains protein, fiber, zinc, & iron ), dried goji berries ( helps with stress & they’re anti-aging! ), & dried blueberries ( filled with antioxidants & Vitamin C ). If you want to get cray, add some dark chocolate chips too.

Oh! & I’m a not a measure-y person, so I basically did a handful of almonds & a 1/2 handful of the rest of the ingreds.

Easy, peasy.

And don’t forget to add your mixture to a 100 cal Ziplock bag for the perfect mid-day snack.

What’s your favorite DIY trail mix? xx. L

Easter madness is over & I’m freaking pooped.

Ya. Pooped.

Even though Easter was super fun ( I mean, who the hell doesn’t like fresh Bellinis on a Sunday? ), I’m glad to get back on track today.

& naturally Monday roared it’s usual ugly, bitchy head…( but extra bitchy because yesterday was a holiday. Boo. ). So today was jammed pack from start to finish but now I’m feeling ready for tomorrow. Monday’s e-mail load was comparable to the Post Office truck dumping all its envelopes/package on my face— fun times, fun times.

So this picture is of Karen ( Michael’s aunt ), Michael, & I. His birthday was two weeks ago & I gave this to him as a gift. The painting is of him & I on Halloween, dressed as creepy skeletons painted by Karen ( << how amazing is she?! ). Anyway, I gifted it to him yesterday; check it out:

Ok, back to Easter: we spent the day between Michael’s parent’s house & my parent’s house. We enjoyed lots of sunshine, lox/bagels, peach tea, & family. It was nice to kick back & relax without a computer ( WTF’s a girl to do without a comp? Yikes! ).

How did you enjoy your Sunday? Any special plans?
