When you are busy, it is important to have a snack that is nutritious, filling and a good source of protein.
Enter in my favorite snack...
Pumpkin Seeds + Walnuts
1/5 cup pumpkin seeds (in shell)*
3 toasted walnut halves
*Eat the whole pumpkin seed for extra fiber, iron, and magnesium. 🤩 Buy your walnuts and pumpkin seeds in bulk.
I toast about a pound of walnuts in the oven @ 400 degree for 15 min. Let them cool then dish out about 6 walnuts and pair with a small handful of roasted pumpkin seeds (unsalted/lightly salted).
I just buy these from amazon (best prices for quality).
So delicious, vegan, keto, diabetic-friendly, and extremely satisfying to help fight junk food cravings throughout the day. I often make a bunch of toasted walnuts, pair them with pumpkin seeds, measure them out, and make about 10 “on-the-go” snack packs for busy mornings.
See pictures below for my snack packs. :D

Stay tuned! Next week I will be sharing my Coconut Cocoa Bites. Coconut is optional, but adds a nice texture.
My husband LOVES these and says that they are a GREAT way to treat a candy craving (if he only knew how healthy they were). Our Secret. :D
