trail mix
I try to stay away from premade packaged trail mixes because they are often loaded with added sugar, salt, and sometimes even artificial colors and flavors. However, I am always making my own clean nut mix for an easy grab-and-go snack! Mix your favorite raw nuts and seeds with a few dried berries and throw them in a small Ziploc bag. This is a great energy-boosting snack when you need that extra push come 2 p.m.! Just be mindful of the portion size. Although nuts and seeds are super nutritious, they have a high calorie content, so it’s easy to overdo it. Fill each baggie with a handful of the nut mix, store them in the fridge (yes the fridge!) to keep them fresh, and stick to only one baggie per day.This recipe is provided by Jennifer Leah Gottlieb.

Roasted Beet and Arugula Salad with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
Roasting beets accentuates their natural sweetness, while toasted pumpkin seeds and arugula bring forth contrasts in texture and flavor, respectively. Radishes are thrown in for good measure. I used candy-striped beets here, but you should buy whatever looks best. Click here to see the Not Just for Carving: 8 Pumpkin Recipes story.

Champagne Grapes Salad With Pumpkin Seeds and Feta
My co-workers often tease me that almost every dish I make includes feta and tomatoes. While they are mostly right, I opted to use sweet, tiny Champagne grapes in lieu of tomatoes for this recipe. Though they are difficult to eat off the stem, they provide a tiny burst of flavor in each bite that nicely balances the tangy feta, while the pumpkin seeds offer a satisfying "crunch."  Click here to see 7 Ideas for Fall Salads.
