D I Y Trail Mix

"Baseball Snack Remix"
One of my new favorite things to do is find products in the bulk section of the grocery store and make my own trail mixes. So many pre-packaged, store-bought trail mixes have peanuts, added sugar, salt or candies in them. Even if your grocery store doesn't have a bulk section where you can buy by weight, I'm almost positive it is less expensive to buy the ingredients separately and then mix them on your own. Trail mix is the perfect snack to bring with you to sporting events, meetings, long days at work/school, theme parks, on an airplane - basically anywhere. Below is a list of super paleo ingredients that can be put in a trail mix, as well as some of my latest creations.

  • Raw walnuts
  • Almonds (whole, slivered, sliced)
  • Pecans
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Cashews 
  • Pistachios
  • Pepitas
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Raisins
  • Dried Cherries
  • Dried Blueberries (Unsweetened)
  • Dried cranberries (If you choose to accept the sweetener.)
  • Banana Chips (Unsweetened)
  • Dark Chocolate chips
  • 100% Cacao chips (what chocolate is made from)
  • "Baseball Snack"
    "Mixed Nuts"
  • Carob chips 
  • Coconut (shredded, flakes, etc.)
