I often get asked for snack ideas or items that are good for on-the-go. I travel a lot and trail mix is a very healthy snack to take with you or even to snack on at your desk. I also keep a ziploc bag full in my car for times that I am gone longer than expected.
Make your own so you can avoid the sugar and hydrogenated oils that are in many ready made mixes. I often roast raw nuts myself. I lightly coat them in coconut oil and spread them out on a cookie sheet. Lightly salt with the healthy Himalayan Pink Salt. Bake at 350 for about 10 – 12 minutes, or until fragrant. If you do decide to add fruit such as cranberries or dried banana chips, make sure they are unsweetened.
