How many of you are trying to get their health in order and watching what you eat? Sick and tired of your belly extending over your pants, feeling sluggish or just down right unhappy in the mirror? We totally get that. We are not on a diet. Heck no, we just don’t do that.
However, we are certainly trying to move more and make sure that everything we do eat is filled with healthy antioxidants, healthy fats, lean grass fed proteins, wild fish and seafood and in season vegetables and fruits. When you start to reduce the white things from your diet like potatoes, rice, sugars and grains you need to ramp up your healthy fats to help you keep you feeling fuller.

You can really use any nuts you desire but we chose pistachios, walnuts and pecans as they are high in protein, omega 3 fatty acids and a delicious trio. According to Live Strong, pistachios, walnuts and pecans are list in the top 9 Healthy Nuts That May Help You Live Longer. Of course, we used raw nuts so we could adjust how much salt and seasonings we added to the mix. Did you know that peanuts are not really a nut but belong to the legume family? We choose not to use peanuts due to so many people having peanut allergies.
You really do not even need a recipe for these Stove Top Rosemary Party Nuts. Just choose 3 cups of your favorite raw nuts, heat olive oil, fresh rosemary, garlic in a pan until aromatic, toss in nuts and add paprika and salt and pepper to taste. That is it. How easy is that!!?
We used fresh garlic so just as an FYI- you must keep your nuts in the refrigerator or freezer because garlic does have a shelf life. If you choose to use garlic powder, then you can leave sealed at room temperature.
