National Trail Mix Day
August ends with National Trail Mix Day on the 31st. Trail Mix is amazing because it is a snack that can be perfectly suited to your individual tastes. Allergic to nuts? Leave ‘em out! Don’t like dried papaya? Don’t use it!
Instead of store bought trail mix, make up a big batch of your own and separate it into snack baggies with 1/4 – 1/2 cup in each bag for a quick pick-me-up snack at work, on the trails, in the car, or wherever!
For a healthy trail mix try the following:
You can choose up to 8 of the following usingÂ Â¼ cup / 60 ml of each ingredient you choose.
- Mini pretzels
- Sunflower seeds
- Dried cranberries
- Dried apricots
- Dried pineapple
- Kashi Go-Lean cereal or other high-protein, non-fat, no-sugar-added cereal
- Dried cherries
- Clean granola of your choice
- Mini, dark chocolate chips (only if itâ€™s your treat day!)
Tip: Give your trail mix a flavor kick by choosing to coat it with olive butter spread, garlic powder, etc.…More at Healthy Recipe: Trail Mix! | Lucille Roberts Health & Fitness Blog
