Follower Sunday: “Thank You Readership!” Guest-Chef Dietitian and Clinical Research Trials Manager, Marie Feldman, Enriches life with Sweet and Spicy Snack Mix

By Anthony J. Sepe

Each Sunday, I thank my readership for their loyalty and dedication to my blog, by providing a healthy recipe.  To those that know, this is a healthy repeat, but for those that are unaware and are new to the blog, this is my way of “giving back.”  It is also a way to “Pay it Forward.”  Each Sunday, not only will you have a healthy recipe, but you will have an expert in the field of dietetics, food and nutrition, provide the healthy recipe to you.  It is my pleasure to provide for you this week, my colleague, Marie Feldman, and her recipe: “Ridiculously Easy Sweet & Spicy Snack Mix”
