It’s no mystery why the body burns through carbs during winter hiking, snow shoeing or cross-country skiing.  So fuel-up with slow-energy releasing carbohydrates and maximize your energy and performance when you take to the snow.

Here’s a delish, easy and highly nutritious wonder-snack for all our winter glampers. Bonus: It’ll be ready in under 20 mins.

  • 1 C oats (rolled or steel-cut based on preference)
  • 1/2 C unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 C pumpkin seeds

  • 1/2 C honey or maple syrup

Method:  Mix all dry ingredients together and spread on a baking sheet. Slightly heat up the honey (or maple syrup) until it is “loose” in the pan and then lightly coat all ingredients with honey. Bake at 200 degrees celsius for 15 mins. or until fragrant.
Cool and seal in re-useable ziplock bags and keep in your pocket, or enjoy for breakfast with yogurt, fruit and a little maple syrup or honey to get you through the day energized.
Food Noise – Local goodness
Find Food Noise at Farmers’ Market’s around Halifax and in Spring 2015 Tanessa is expanding her local goodness with the grand opening of her Portland St. location in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.  Watch for it Mid-March.
*Hemp hearts are shelled hemp seeds and you can find them in any grocery or health store. If you can’t find them, substitute chia seeds.
A note about chia seeds: We love chia seeds for their ability to absorb nine times their volume in water. So, they keep you hydrated longer and feeling fuller longer.  They’re high in omega-3 and omega-6 = good brain boosting, healthy-heart functioning little seed that’s a great source of protein.  Worth sprinkling on everything!

Happy glamping!
