Toasted Nuts & Soy Seeds

These snacks are super easy to prep if you’ve already got the oven on for something else, like your dinner. The temperature doesn’t have to be exact as you can toast them for longer or shorter time depending on the temperature. I always make sure we’ve got a tub of both these snacks on hand. The nuts are great with fruit as a snack. The seeds can be used as snacks but also sprinkled on any dish that needs a salty hit or a crunchy texture, such as soups and salads. They’re great as part of your weekend prep to have in the cupboard for quick snacks during the week. www.midlifemenu.com/recipes/nuts-and-seeds
