    A Recipe for Low Carb Trail Mix
    This is just one possibility, of course.

    * 1 cup roasted peanuts
    * 1 cup raw or roasted almonds
    * 1 cup pumpkin or squash seeds (How To Toast Pumpkin Seeds)
    * 2 oz unsweetened coconut
    * ½ cup raisins (loosely-packed, i.e. don’t cram in as many as possible)

    Nutritional Information: This should make about 16 servings of ¼ cup each. Each serving will have 6.5 grams of effective carbohydrate and 3.5 grams of fiber. If you make the same mix without the raisins, assuming 14 servings, each will have 4 grams of effective carbohydrate and 3 grams of fiber.

    Other Good Choices For Trail Mix

    * Sunflower seeds
    * Filberts (hazelnuts)
    * Walnuts
    * Soy nuts
    * Other nuts and seeds, but check the labels for carbs
