Enjoy Life Foods No Nuts Blends!

Posted on

Enjoy Life Foods has done it again!  Another fabulous product to add to the shelf of your pantry.  They’ve come up with two ingenious “no nuts” blends for the folks who love trail mixes but can’t do the whole “nuts” thing 😉 Whether it is due to a food allergy, preference, or digestability issues, you no longer have to miss out on the tasty trail mix-like versions of these healthy snacks!  

NO TRANS FAT, NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS, VEGAN, KOSHER PAREVE, GLUTEN-FREE, CASEIN-FREE

 

Mainly due to the fact that this medley includes chocolate chips, the Mountain Mambo version was my fave.  In the mix you can find sunflower kernels, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), raisins, dried apples, pineapple, chocolate chips, and cranberries.  The combination of sweet & salty had me at “hello”.

The nutritionals are similar to that of typical trail mix and can run high in calories if you don’t pay attention to serving sizes.  The fats that are missing from the nuts are replaced with that of the seeds, most of which are considered “good fats”. 

In concurrence, we have the Beach Bash no nuts mix, comprised of pineapple, sunflower kernels, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, and apricots.  Still yummy, but I found this version to be a poor man’s Mountain Mambo blend, which is odd, because I’ve always considered myself more of a beach person than a mountain man 😉

The calories in this mix went down 10, but the carbs went up 1g?  Probably due to the additional pineapple.  Also, 1g less protein!  These things are great for piling into greek yogurt with cereal, or even making  your own “trail mix” bars for on-the-go treats!  Great on their own, by the handful, too!

As I said before, I enjoyed both of these products, but if you want my honest opinion, the Beach Bash should add a few different ingredients to make it seem more tropical?  How abouts some unsweetened banana & coconut chips?!

Overall, pretty great additions to the Enjoy Life Foods family, especially for those with allergens!  Thanks for sharing these with me, Kasey! 🙂

  1. Back before we started on the SC Diet, my daughter and I would eat Enjoy Life foods (due to her peanut/tree nut allergy). Some of the stuff was kind of blech, but I LOVED their trail mixes and my daughter loved some of their cookies.
