I’m the girlfriend you text when you’re scratching your head reading labels in the grocery store, the confidante you blurt your “I can’t tell anyone else!” bathroom shenanigans to and the handy science nerd who comes through with the best cost-cutting, time-saving health tips you don’t know how you ever lived without.

hello,

Homemade Trail Mix

One of my family’s favorite snacks these days is my homemade trail mix. Super simple to make, packed with healthy fats and nutrients, this simple homemade trail mix helps to keep me full longer and is just plain delicious! Plus, super great for on-the-go snacking.

Why Make Your Own Trail Mix?

I prefer making my own trail for a few reasons:

  1. Most store-bought trail mix are loaded with salt and often made using refined, bleached, and/or deodorized oils.
  2. I get to decide which nuts, seeds, and dried fruit I want to munch on.
  3. Making my own trail mix helps to reduce packaging waste as I tend to get most of my seeds and nuts in bulk! Not always possible, but whenever available, I highly recommend this option!
