Easy + Healthy Trail Mix Recipe *Video
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

I often see trail mix in stores, and I think most people assume that this is inherently healthy. The other day, I saw a photo of some trail mix that was roasted peanuts, raisins and m&m’s.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with junk food sometimes – but the label ‘trail mix’ I think is misleading in that case. That would not be the fuel I would choose when hiking a trail – even if m&m’s were vegan…

Make your own healthy trail mix! It’s super simple, and can save some money. Plus you can add a few little treats of your own…
