Trail mix is a great way to have a high-protien snack that keeps you going even through the toughest Monday slump. Oftentimes, trail mix gets a bad rap (too high in fat, hidden sugars, high in calories). While it's true that nuts are high in fat, that the milk chocolate-covered raisins are candy, and that it's a high-calorie snack, that doesn't mean it's a bad option for a snack! In fact, used in moderation, it can be an ideal snack on the go or at the home office! The key is making wise choices when building your own snack mix. What to include in your own trail mix: 1. Nuts - obviously nuts are a huge hit. If you're looking for keeping the sodium levels down in your diet, opt for unsalted versions of your favourite nuts. It's also really easy to roast your own, so it might be a great option to get your hands on some raw nuts instead of roasted nuts (oftentimes they have added oils and fats that they have been roasted in). 2. Seeds - I can't believe the nutritional benefits that seeds can give! Again, try to find unsalted, raw seeds (you can always add a bit of a seasoning mix to it after where you can control how much of what goes in the mix!) and be sure to incorporate them into your mixture. 3. Dried fruits - dried wild blueberries, cranberries, raisins, apple slices, etc. There are a HUGE amount of options out there for adding the sweet, chewy bit to your mixture. Again, if you're looking for a healthier option, smaller pieces and lower-sugar fruits may be your best bet (for example, dried mangos may have a higher sugar content than dried wild blueberries). 4. Your Extras - This is where you can (in moderation) add some delicious options to change up your mix. Consider adding plain popcorn, small pieces of dark chocolate, pretzels, butterscotch chips, etc. for a pop of flavour and texture! Your ratios should be about 1.5:1:1:0.5, respectively. ...
