Is home made party mix health food?

You've got your oats (Cheerios), you've got your rice, corn, wheat (Chex) and mixed nuts. It's fresh/home made so there aren't any preservatives. The pretzels have sodium on them - so I just won't eat as many as those.

Yeah, sounds like health food to me, think I'll have some more. [img]smile.gif[/img]

It depends what you fry it in.

If you use ordinary lard, then no it's not health food.

If you fry it in vegetable oil, then it's ok

But for best results, fry it in extra virign olive oil. This stuff is good for you.

What do you mean you weren't planning on frying it? You can't cook food any other way.

tsk, tsk, shame, shame.

We don't fry it. We pour the mixture (double the tabasco) over the healthy ingredients and BAKE IT. Stirring said healthy ingredients 3 times during the process.
