Paleo Snack Mix
Chex Mix is the one snack I cannot stop eating. I would probably weigh 10 pounds less if had never eaten Chex Mix in my life.
But I dabble in paleo – and I know many of you follow paleo, Whole30 or grain-free diets. And Chex Mix is definitely not paleo-friendly.
The fix? Find a paleo-friendly alternative to Chex Mix.
A Healthier Snack Mix
Around Christmastime, there is always a delicious but unhealthy snack sitting within arm’s length, ready to be eaten.
This is the year to find healthier alternatives to your favorite foods.
If you’re a Chex Mix addict and looking for a grain-free alternative, give this recipe a try!
It’s delicious and just as addictive.
But it’s more satiating than traditional Chex Mix. Again, I can’t stop eating Chex Mix. But after a couple handfuls of this paleo snack mix, I’m good.
(It’s probably the nourishing whole foods, like plantain chips, nuts, and coconut!)
