Make your own Trail mix
Store bought trail mix often has many added things that you just don't want in your trail mix. Added sugars, chemicals, additives, food coloring, and sometimes even artificial sugars.
Try making your own at home and experiment with different ingredients.
I often make mine with almonds, cashews, dried cranberries, raisins, peanuts, and sometimes I will even throw in some little pieces of very dark chocolate (70% cocoa or higher).
It is a huge energy booster and and easy snack for when I am on the go.
I have attached a picture of my post-workout snack today: Homemade trailmix, and an orange. Great way to help your body recover from a good workout!
