"At the restaurant, I used to take slices of bacon off trays, stuff them in a roll and eat that as a snack," says chef Jeremy Sewall of Lineage in Brookline, Massachusetts, who has lost about 40 pounds. He now stashes healthy snacks, like this roasted nut mix, everywhere to help him resist other temptations.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1/4 cup raw walnut halves
  • Sea salt or kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup banana chips

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Toss the nuts with a pinch of salt and spread on a baking sheet. Toast for 10 minutes until golden, stirring halfway through. Let the nuts cool completely. Mix the nuts with the dried fruits.
