Spicy Mixed Nuts

Nuts are an amazing snack. This spicy and salty nut mix is so delicious, it will be gone in a heartbeat. They are a great snack to have on the table when guests are coming to your house for dinner. It is always great to keep a handful in your purse or desk to give you a boost when you are on the go. They will give you lots of energy and no one will guess that they are so healthy!


When roasting something in the oven, I love to use grape seed oil instead of olive oil since it is not only filled with antioxidants, but also has a much higher smoke point temperature than olive oil, and will therefore not burn when heated at high temperatures. I use olive oil in salads or add it after cooking to avoid burning. Hope you enjoy this delicious healthy snack!
