I am re- inventing my Curry Party Mix recipe with some healthier dry ingredients .
Yes, I know that most of you will be chuckling because Healthy Party Mix is an Oxymoron, but i am looking to replace the worthless ingredients (no flavor, no significant nutritional value, like Corn Nuts, Corn Chex, All-Bran, Puffed Brown Rice)with whole grain and protein- stronger elements. But I am NOT a nutritionist and i need more knowledge. My current version contains: roasted edamame [ used to be called soy nuts], wheat chex, roasted no- salt Va. peanuts, sesame stix, roasted cashews, and the nutritionless but flavorful goldfish/extra cheddar and mini bachmann pretzel sticks. To add further to your chuckles, I am working to significantly lessen the salt demons by : lining a bowl with a terrycloth towel, pouring in the pretzels, roasted edamame and goldfish, and rubbing the bundle to remove the salt, then lifting the mix, by handfuls,leaving the salt behind, as much as possible.
Now, the reason i'm explaining all this is not because i want you deriding me and telling me i'm crazy, but because i wondered if any of you smart 52ers might have other ingredient suggestions. wheat germ, special k, brewers yeast? etc. Please play nice and stay away if all you can bring to the table is sarcasm and attitude. Looking forward to learning from you all, and thx much for your time..
