August 31 is National Trail Mix Day!
Trail mix is a high energy, nutritious, sweet and salty snack that’s easy to make, store and eat. No wonder it’s the staple hiking snack!
So what’s all in trail mix anyway? Trail mix is usually some combination of dried fruit, raisins, nuts, legumes, seeds, chocolate and grains, such as granola or cereal. The best part about trail mix is that you can add and leave out whatever you want!
Celebrate National Trail Mix Day by dedicating snack time to trail mix. While you can certainly make a quick run to the store and grab a bag of prepackaged trail mix, making your own is so much more fun and healthier.Try out one of the trail mix recipes below or make up your own. It’s easy!
