Terrific Trail Mix

Today I am in Zion's National Park with my family and it is so beautiful!

We are doing some hiking and I thought I would share this great trail mix recipe.

Trail Mix is a quick energy food that helps to stave off hunger and because of it's fat content, can help keep you warm at night!

You can make a variety of your own trail mixes. A salty mix can include any combination of Corn nuts, mixed nuts, pretzels, Chex cereal, roasted sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, cheddar crackers, and sesame sticks.

Sweet trail mix can include granola, nuts, dried fruit like raisins, cherries, apricots, cranberries, dates, coconut flakes, honey-roasted peanuts, and M&Ms.

Simply combine your ingredients, and pack them into snack-size bags. It's a great snack to share with a hiking buddy.
