On-the-Go Antioxidant Trail Mix & Hearty Green Stew “Chili”

For my snack today, I made a delicious trail mix that was quick to put together. I threw in some goji berries to make it high in antioxidants and the blend of almonds and walnuts made the trail mix high in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat! It’s a perfect pre or post workout snack or even just when you are a little hungry.

On a side note, the green roti that I posted a few hours ago ended up getting accepted by Tastespotting.com! I was so excited and happy 🙂 Check it out if you get a chance. Also, for dinner, we made a hearty green stew “chili”!

3. Cut all of the other vegetables and throw them into the pot when you start to see the bubbling occur. Sprinkle in all the spices as well and mix thoroughly. Allow the stew “chili” to cook for about 10 minutes. Serve warm! Enjoy alone, with some bread, or tortilla chips.
