<article itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Recipe"> <section itemprop="description"> <p>Having a healthy relationship with snacking is essential to living your best life! You don’t want to starve yourself between meals, but you also don’t want to accidentally turn to processed junk food when a craving strikes. Having a range of quick, easy, portable snacking options suited to your diet and lifestyle is the way to go. Full of healthy fats, this seed-and-nut blend will fuel you for whatever’s coming your way.</p> </section> <section> <header>Golden Treasure</header> <p>Most of us only encounter cashews as part of a nut blend. You might not even recognize them in their natural state! These moon-shaped golden treats grow inside a large fruit called a cashew apple. Because of their short shelf life, they’re rarely found outside the tropical regions where they grow—but they produce fantastic juice! Cashew trees are also incredibly useful, their wood is a natural termite repellent. But the cashew nuts we know and love are just as amazing. They’re particularly rich in iron and copper, essential nutrients that help us manufacture red blood cells. Cashews also help keep our nervous and immune systems functioning at their very best. </p> </section> <section> <header>Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia</header> <p>Packed with fiber, protein, and heart-healthy omega 3 fatty acids, chia seeds are tiny nutritional superheroes. They’re digested very slowly, which helps regulate your blood sugar and keeps you feeling full longer. That means sustained energy and fewer cravings, which can help with both weight loss and your general sense of well-being! Plus, chia seeds contain many essential vitamins and minerals. One is manganese. This mineral helps the body manufacture enzymes necessary to support everything from good digestion to healthy nerves.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <header itemprop="name">Cinnamon Trail Mix</header> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT15M">Prep Time: 5 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT35M">Cooking Time: 15 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 14</span> </div> <div class="sub-head">Ingredients</div> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; cup whole raw almonds</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; cup pecan halves</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; cup walnut pieces</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; cup cashews</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; cup unsweetened coconut flakes </li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup chia seeds</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup flax seeds</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup sunflower seeds</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup coconut oil</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon vanilla extract</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">3 teaspoons ground cinnamon</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 teaspoon sea salt</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup granulated monk fruit sweetener</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <div class="sub-head">Instructions</div> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li>Preheat the oven to 350&deg;F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.</li> <li>In a large mixing bowl, combine all the nuts and seeds.</li> <li>In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the coconut oil.
