Easy 5 Ingredient Paleo Snack Mix

Easy Paleo 5-Ingredient Snack Mix | Hold the Lemon

I am currently trying out paleo and loving it! I’ll add my voice to the many that say that it just gives me more energy and makes me feel better to be eating cleaner. For those unfamiliar, basically paleo restricts grains, dairy, legumes, processed foods, and added sugars. It’s a bit more complicated than that, and it involves more than just diet.

Every week or so I have been making myself a paleo trail mix snack. I find that having something quick and easy on me at work or while I’m running errands makes paleo more manageable for me. I was trying to make my snack mix in one big batch and divide it among the week, but this time I decided to get precise to one day’s serving.  Here is this week’s mix:

    1. It is super excellent, and a great base for other options! I am attempting another mix that maxes out at 150 calories but still has all the paleo goodness. Stay tuned!
