meals: mixed nuts
  • almonds
  • walnuts
  • cashews
  • peanuts
  • sunflower seeds
  • raisins
  • dried cranberries

Feel free to add your own dried food. Just keep it clean and all natural.

Other than being cost effective, the other great benefit to homemade trail mix is the absence of preservatives and artificial flavorings. Unsalted, raw nuts combined with dried fruit make for a delicious snack at home, in the office, or on the road. Keep a zip-lock bag in your car to avoid the quick coke and candy bar stop or to squash those drive-time hunger pains.

Once your mix is complete, reuse your empty bags to store your wonderful creation. Each day refill your storage container, and you're equipped with a tasty and nutritious snack.
