Pretzel Potpourri

This snack is like Chex® Party mix without all the hype. There's a little of everything in this mixture: that irrepressible pretzel flavor, a taste of cheese, a boost of bran, and the crunchy savory surprise of a roasted soybean every now and then. Although dry roasted soybeans contain seven times the omega-6s compared with omega-3s, it still has a better omega profile than many other types of nuts (for example, pistachio nuts have 100 times more omega-6s than omega-3s, and peanuts have 6,000 times more omega-6s than omega-3s).

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup reduced fat Cheez-Its®
  • 1 cup Multi-Bran Chex® cereal (or similar)
  • 1/2 cup roasted soybeans (original or any other flavor)

Preparation:
1. TOSS: Add all of the ingredients to a half-gallon or gallon-size resealable bag, seal it well, and toss the ingredients to blend.
2. GO: Take it with you on your road trip for a healthful, flavorful, high-fiber snack!

Yield:
7 (1/2 cup) servings.
