Homemade Trail Mix

I’ve always been a big snacker. I’m not a fan of a big sit down meal but would be happy to graze my way through the day. While I am working on shifting my habits to eating more structured meals, I still do like to have something on hand for days when I am on the go and may want to have snacks available. Trail mix has always been a great option for me especially as it starts to get warmer because it can go anywhere without worrying about it melting, or going bad, or not staying cold. The more aware I have become of labels, portions, and all that good stuff, the more I have noticed how “unhealthy” some trail mixes can actually be. I prefer to make my own simply because I can control the ingredients, and make them exactly to my liking. Here are some of my favorites:


Fruity Trail Mix: 

  • Freeze dried pineapple
  • Freeze dried strawberries
  • Raw almonds
  • Cacao nibs

  • Unsalted peanuts 
  • Dried apple juice sweetened cranberries

  • Shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
