Berries, Seeds, & Nuts Bowl for Antioxidants and Good Fats

Berries, Seeds, & Nuts Bowl

Since berries are one of my favorite

healthy snacks,

I try to find new ways to incorporate them into my meals. This is a simple and absolutely delicious way to do that. Berries are full of antioxidants (substances that help prevent cell damage) and also have anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, they make the perfect pre and post-workout snack. Here’s what to put in it:

A handful of fresh berries (I used blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. Also, do not use frozen berries for this–they won’t give this recipe the same fresh heartiness)

A splash of almond milk

About 1 tablespoon of vanilla protein powder–I use Jay Robb’s Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (to add protein and flavor to the milk)

Sprinkling of chia seeds

Sprinkling of flax seeds

Sprinkling of pistachios

Sprinkling of pecans

Toss it all together and enjoy this healthy, yet tasty and satisfying snack!
