Trail Mix

One of the top challenges I know I face along with a lot of others out there, is making quick snacks. Instead of running to the pantry and grabbing the chips or the junk food, why not make healthy snacks of your own that are ready to grab when that sudden urge of hunger comes on.

Trail mix is one of my favorite grab and go snacks! I have created this recipe using a few of my favorite dried fruits, seeds and nuts.

The fun part about trail mix is that you can add your favorite nuts, seeds and dried fruits and mix it up each time you make it! So go ahead…give it a try!
