Ranch-Snack-MixTry this recipe for a snack mix with the tangy twist of ranch dressing.  By adding nuts, you are getting protein along with the complex carbohydrates found in the pretzels, fish crackers and cereal.  Eating a protein and carbohydrate together will make you feel full longer.   Nuts offer a dose of heart healthy fat and by choosing whole grain fish crackers and wheat cereal, you are boosting the fiber content a little which will help you feel fuller faster.  This is a great snack for kids to prepare by themselves or with just a little help from an adult.
