Savory Green Dream Trail Mix Recipe

I can’t get enough trail mix in a single day. When I’m out in the world - hiking, walking, or just getting from one activity to the other - trail mix is one of my favorite sources of fuel. The problem with most trail mixes, however, is the excessive sugar and unhealthy fat that comes with them. These make the mix yummy while you’re eating it but lead to a hard crash and low energy soon after you eat them. There are two ways to beat that problem - by making trail mix at home, and by going against the grain with a trail mix that’s savory rather than sweet. That’s right - I think trail mix shouldn’t need M&Ms, caramel chips, or sugary, processed fruit chunks to be desirable as a snack.


In fact, this savory trail mix beats just about every sweet, store-bought version I’ve ever had. My boys need lots of vitamins and minerals to keep their growing, active bodies full of energy, and they love the savory alternative this recipe provides. It’s got everything you love in a traditional trail mix, like almonds, cashews, and walnuts. These nuts are great sources of healthy protein and fat, with the benefit of being really filling. I also included pumpkin seeds, which are probably the most nutrient-rich seed you can eat.


One key ingredient of this recipe is dried golden berries. These may look like cranberries or raisins, but they’re actually similar to a tomatillo or cherry tomato with a sort of tropical sweetness, like mango or pineapple. Not only do they give this mix a tangy twist, but they’re also full of fiber, Vitamin C, and Thiamine, among a whole bunch of other essential nutrients and minerals.


All you need to do to make this trail mix is follow the recipe in the name. Gather the ingredients mentioned and mix them well in a bowl. Once all the ingredients have gotten to know each other, introduce them to our Green Dream Savory seasoning for a superfood burst that ties all the flavors together. Then, once you’ve got the mix, find yourself a trail and get snacking!

Gather This:

½ cup almonds

¼ cup pumpkin seeds

¼ cup walnuts

¼ cup cashews

2 tbsp coconut shreds

2 tbsp Goldenberries

1 tbsp Green Dream Savory Seasoning

 

Do This:

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and combine well. Top final mixture with additional coconut shreds, golden berries, and Green Dream Savory Seasoning, to taste.

Baked Avocado Egg Recipe

I love a good breakfast, but when you’ve got several mouths to feed – including your own – cooking it can feel like a total chore. Because of this, I need a solid go-to breakfast option that doesn’t disrupt my important morning ritual and gives my body all of the nutrition it needs to get through my day. That’s why I love this simple recipe that meets all of my body’s needs, tastes great, and takes no time at all to prepare.

 

Baked Avocado Eggs are a staple of Paleo cooking that provides everything you need in a breakfast. All you do is slice an avocado lengthwise, remove the pit, and crack and egg in the cavity of each slice before throwing it in the oven. That’s it!

 

Both avocados and eggs have plenty of healthy fat to fill you up in the morning, and eggs are an excellent source of protein, the nutrient you need most after a night of rest. For an extra protein boost, I love sprinkling my avocado egg with Green Dream Savory Seasoning, which includes nutritional yeast and Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend. Nutritional yeast is a fantastic and delicious source of natural protein, B vitamins, and crucial trace minerals like zinc and manganese, which is why I included it in the Savory Seasoning.

 

I also toss a few hemp seeds on the avocado when it comes of the oven. Hemp seeds are another awesome source of protein and healthy fats, with the extra benefits of minerals like potassium, iron, zinc, and calcium. They add a really nice nutty flavor to the avocado egg and have this chewy texture similar to chia or flax seeds.

 

Prepping this for the oven can take less than 1 minute and only needs about 15-20 minutes in the oven, depending on how you like the texture of your egg. That’s a perfect amount of time to do a short workout, meditate, put on your make up, or get your kiddos ready for school. Try it out for yourself and feel free to experiment with your favorite toppings!

Gather This:

2 medium eggs

1 ripe avocado

½ tsp Green Dream Savory Seasoning

Hemp seeds


Do This:

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice avocado lengthwise and remove pit. Scoop out about 1 tbsp of avocado to create more room for the egg. Place avocado on a baking sheet flesh-side up (if the avocado tilts sideways, make a little stand out of aluminum foil to prop it up). Crack one egg into the cavity of each avocado half. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and season with Green Dream Savory Seasoning and hemp seeds. Let cool and enjoy!

Green Dream Pear Matcha Latte Recipe

After a long weekend, an energizing and detoxifying smoothie is an absolute must. We celebrated baby Noa almost turning ONE! I can’t believe nearly a year has gone since our little babe has been earthside. We had friends and family over who have stood by us for this whole journey for a little house party with lots of yummy food, a magical unicorn cake and even an alpaca!


Easing back into my work after the celebrations of this weekend means soft + gentle mornings and lots of nourishing foods and drinks like this Green Dream Pear Matcha Latte. I love energizing with this vibrant green matcha latte! Matcha provides a boost of energy without leading to the usual caffeine crash that accompanies coffee. This beautiful powder is also incredibly healing and is chockfull of catchechins, which aid in counteracting the harmful effects of free radicals.

1 banana

1 pear

1 lime

1 handful spinach

1 tbsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend

1 tsp matcha

1 cup water or nut milk
