You can keep the bars in the freezer and take them out when you need a snack, or have in your bag to use for refilling your energy after training.

The perfect trail mix – or snack!

The perfect trailmixAfter many years of experimenting I have finally found the perfect nut mix, or trail mix. But, did I invent it myself? No, unfortunately not. I found it on a hike in the north of Sweden, at Grövelsjön in their nice restaurant.
It is so good that I always want to have a pre-mixed jar in my cupboard, ready to grab a handful for a snack or to add in my yoghurt in the morning. Here is the mix:

  • Sunflower seeds
  • Hazelnuts
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cashewnuts (not salted)
  • Almonds

The perfect trailmixThe measurements are done “on feeling”. A little bit more of what you like the most. Rost them in the oven without any added fat or oil until they’ve gotten a bit of colour.

Now you won’t go hungry on your next hike!

The perfect antioxidant-keep-your-tummy-fine mix

Keep your tummy in shape!This is my ultimate berry and seed mix I’m using after years of experimenting and years as a porridge lover. It gives me a good start to the day with both fibers and antioxidants. Instead of taking a bit of this and that in the morning from each packet of seeds (takes forever!) I just take two tbsp from the mix I made in the jar and throw it in my oatmeal porridge.
Try for a few days and your belly will thank you. You can also use the mix on yogurt and in bread you’re baking.
21 portions of 2.5 tbsp each.
