I suppose you take Flax to get omega 3s. Not sure what you are trying to get through your nut mix? 1 TBSP of flax will give highest amount of omega 3 when compared to 1 Tsp of nutmix. So there might be some good reason why nutrition Guru uses Nut Mix.

Obviously the best way to get Vitamin D is from sunlight, but I live in Northern Europe and for a large chunk of the year there isn't much sunlight. I also have a fairly serious illness that stops me getting out, especially in the cold seasons.
