Low-carb Roasted Vegetable Snack Mix!

Would you like to grab handfuls of an addictive, savory, mouth watering snack that’s good for you? My answer is yes, and that’s why I played with my vegetables and came up with this delicious snack mix.


It started with a tomato and basil mini cheese ball recipe I made for a party. I didn’t want to put raw tomatoes in them, so I roasted some of my Thrive Life tomato dices by adding a hint of coconut oil, pink salt and Chef’s Choice seasoning. The tomatoes were luscious and my mini cheese balls were a hit.

Requests for low-carb recipes have been coming in lately, which has me looking at labels for new information. It turns out that tomatoes, zucchini and asparagus are all low in carbohydrate. I added them together, tossed them with a drizzle of coconut oil, some pink salt, Chef’s Choice and a bit of garlic powder. Roasting takes about twenty minutes and then…


Oh. My. Yum!


The tomatoes take on incredible umami. The zucchini, crunchy sweetness. The asparagus, crunchy green goodness.

I’m bringing my low-carb roasted vegetable snack mix to Fiesta Friday this week to share with Angie, the many talented cooks there and our host Sandhya@indfused.com

I’m drooling just thinking about eating this so now I have to make more. There’s no way to keep them in the house except to make more. My guests and I have a good case of Snack Mix Fever!

Here’s how you can catch it, too.


1 cup Thrive Life tomato dices

1 cup Thrive Life asparagus

1 cup Thrive Life zucchini

1 tbsp. coconut oil, melted

1 tsp. Himalayan pink salt

1 tsp. Thrive Life Chef’s Choice

1 tsp. garlic powder


Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

Gently mix the vegetables together, right out of the can. Do not refresh them. Add seasonings. Stir in the coconut oil and then gently mix to coat the seasonings and oil over all of the vegetables.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the vegetable mixture on the sheet and then roast them for fifteen to twenty minutes, stirring vegetables every five minutes for even roasting.

Allow the roasted vegetables to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container. I think they will keep for a week, but I’ve never been able to keep them around for more than a day or two, so I’m not exactly sure about that one.

You know, I think they would make good croutons in my salad. Hmm.

THRIVE Life Foods – You Can Applaud and Chew at the Same Time

Months ago our good friend Diane Novack started posting about THRIVE Life foods. Gina’s curiosity grew when her posts kept coming. Gina was busy ending her position at the store and starting to teach regular classes on the weekend when she had the brilliant idea to offer food through our new company, The Reiki Cafe. Our search began for non-perishable foods we could offer to nutrition and Reiki clients. And there were Diane’s posts about how delicious THRIVE Life is. How convenient THRIVE Life is. How healthy THRIVE Life is.

We asked questions about GMOs, pesticides, processing, hormones, food coloring, enzymes, and additives; Diane had all the right answers.

No GMO’s

No presticides

Home delivery



No waste because we can make what we need and save the rest for later

No hormones

Active enzymes

Superior nutrition from field ripened foods that are freeze dried 2-4 hours after picking. Not 21 days later as it is with gassed bananas, for example

Thriving Nations – THRIVE donates to ending hunger with every sale

Active cultures in the yogurt

All of that sounded great, but how did it taste? And was it expensive?


Gina’s New Favorite Snack – $8.49 for 15 servings

Diane offered to come over to Gina’s for a tasting. Cyhndi’s mom was already a customer, and Cyhndi said everything she tried was great. Gina and Cyhndi agreed that if the food tasted good, it would have a home at The Reiki Cafe. The Corn is incredible. It satisfies cravings between lunch and dinner, and Gina is still pinching herself (not hard, don’t worry), because she found another way to add vegetables to her day. You can eat it out of the can, or reconstitute it. One ingredient on the label: corn.

pineapple-chunks 14.79 for 15 servings

When you come for a meditation, session, or class at The Reiki Cafe, you will probably be offered pineapple-infused water. It is incredibly refreshing and delicious. Plus, there are active digestive enzymes in the water. Yum!


Gina’s other favorite snack is Strawberry Yogurt Bites. $16.09 for 15 servings.

Where was this food when the kids were going to school? It travels well, it tastes great, and it keeps them from eating the junk.

Gina is a THRIVE Life consultant, so please feel free to ask about ordering, hosting parties for free THRIVE Life foods from anywhere in the U.S. and Canada, and about starting your own THRIVE Life business.

So, what do you think of THRIVE?

As always, thank you for the time you spend with us!

Gina and Cyhndi
