Seeds and Nuts Trial Mix

Seeds and Nuts Trail Mix. 

Very delighted to share that being part of group like Kukclean, which is totally based upon healthy living, healthy cooking, and holistic food . So I also have a habit of every time giving good and healthy nutrients to my family.

I am also part of Mudypuddler and they recently associated me with a brand called Puremart

Puremart, i am really thankful to you for sending me such a nice pack of all super foods like pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds. They all are so fresh and nice. which i am using daily in my eating whether it is a salad or smoothie or if i need something to munch. 

 Today my husband was traveling, I don't want him to consume chips, fried nankeens or similar unhealthy stuff which is easily available the market. Rather i thought he needs something healthy and filling, which he can easily carry with himself. So I prepared my seeds and nuts trail in which i used pumpkin seeds, Sunflower seeds, flex seeds, Sesame seeds and nuts like almonds, raisin and cashew.

Benefits of Pumpkin Seed : It is full of nutrients, and packed with antioxidants.It is good source of fibre.

Benefits of Flex seeds : It is again loaded with many nutrients. Rich source of Omega 3 fatty acid. It contains high quality protein.

Benefits of Sunflower seeds : It rich in Vitamin B complex, and a good source of  Phosphorus, Magnesium, Iron, Calcium and Vitamin E. It act as a Immunity boaster also... So the benefits are endless 

I simply dry roasted all the nuts and seeds. As all seeds and nuts are having their individual size and shape and hence should be roasted separately.  I pan roasted them separately and then mixed with sesame seed oil and little bit of chat masala powder, roasted jeera and rock salt to give it an Indian namkeen taste which we all love. 

Enjoy and do share your feedback
