Easy Homemade Trail Mix

Easy Homemade Trail Mix
By now you’ve probably noticed that Nik and I travel — A LOT. This weekend, we are headed to LA to visit Nik’s family, and in a few weeks we’ll be headed back down to North Carolina for a wedding.

One of the biggest tips I have for staying on track while traveling is to bring HEALTHY snacks. That way you won’t get hangry on your trips — or make impulsive, bad decisions. So, I always bring things like simple granola or this easy homemade trail mix.

Easy Homemade Trail Mix
Ok, so trail mix is not at all hard to make, and is super easy to find in any grocery or convenience store. However, since I love making basically everything at home — I like to make our own!

The mixes that you see in many stores are made with roasted and salted nuts or seeds and sugar-sweetened dried fruits, and many times M&M’s or chocolate, or whatever! You get the idea — sometimes, it’s much harder to find a “clean” trail mix than you may think.

So I always head over to the bulk section of Whole Foods, pick out a bunch of raw, unsalted nuts and unsweetened dried fruits to make my very own mix. You can find raw nuts at just about any grocery store, but unsweetened dried fruits can be a little trickier to find. You’re best bet would be to check out a local health food store, Whole Foods Market, or even check out Amazon.

The best thing about making your own trail mix is that you can use absolutely any ingredients you want! Sometimes I even add some dark chocolate pieces for a little treat — and a perfectly healthy way to kick those chocolatey cravings! 😉
