Lets Celebrate Trail Mix Day!

August 31st is National Trail Mix Day! What kind(s) do you like best? I consider us to be “equal opportunity snackers”. Be it pre-packaged or hand-made, it is a tasty treat to have along. But don’t think it has to be boring and plain – no gorp for me (good ol’ raisins and peanuts)!

Want some homemade recipes?

Red, White and Black Trail Mix

Fair Food Trail Mix

Banana Split Trail Mix

 Chocolate Popcorn Trail Mix

Candy De-Lite Trail Mix

Rocky Road Trail Mix

To add in to your trail mix:

Candied Pecans

Spiced Maple Pecans

Favorite ready-to-eat blends?

Navitas makes two I like (they are raw/vegan):

SunRidge Farms makes many nice blends:

(Their Thai Cashews are great added to a plain mix)

For fun, go to a natural food store with bulk bins and pick up a little of this and that and make your own blends – add in what sounds or looks good. It can be a fun way to build a mix!

But whatever you do, enjoy the last day of August today!
