Showing You How To Give Up Sodium Without Giving Up Your Life
Spicy Chex Mix
This makes a spicy version of the old snack mix favorite. The secret here is to find lower sodium versions of the typical ingredients. This includes unsalted nuts, unsalted pretzels and low sodium cereal. Chex cereal contains quite a bit of sodium, but you can readily find substitutes like mini shredded wheat and sodium free versions of Cherrios. There are a number of good commercial seasoning mixes that contain no salt, such as those from Mrs. Dash, frontier and Mr. Spice. The sesame sticks are available at many gourmet and organic food stores. If you can't find them just increase the amount of cereal.
6 T Unsalted Margarine
Melt margarine. Add seasonings and stir. Combine nuts, pretzels and sesame sticks in a large bowl. Pour sauce over and stir to coat. Stir in cereal and mix well. Bake at 275 for 3 hour, stirring occasionally.
