Healthy Snack Idea

Get Fit Challenge: Trader Joe's Trail Mix

We're up to week 10 of the Get Fit For 2010 giveaway and this week's challenge is to share your favorite healthy snack. Here's a satisfying idea from nic222 that's easy to munch on anywhere.

I try to fit in a piece of raw fruit for my morning healthy snack, but in a pinch, I grab an individual bag of "Just a handful of simply almonds, cashews and cranberries" from Trader Joe's. The combination is bound to hit most cravings: crunchy, chewy, sweet, and salty. At 210 calories, it feels indulgent, but it's not too calorie-laden, and the bit of protein is filling as well. Plus, the individual bags prevent you from eating the entire package!

You gotta love Trader Joe's! Tell me about your favorite healthy snack in the Get Fit For 2010 community group. By participating, you'll also be entered into the drawing for our weekly giveaway of a $100 Nike gift card as well as our awesome grand prize.

The only bummer about this is the amount of waste from the packaging. I haven't bought these myself - anyone know if the little baggies can be recycled?

I LOVE the TJ's trail mix bag. So yummy and filling. I always spread some out for guests along with some figs.
