What is Trail Mix?
Originally made for hikers and campers, trail mix is a calorie-dense snack that is packed with nutrients that you can take with you on-the-go. It provides protein, healthy fats, fiber, and carbohydrates, giving you the energy you need to fuel your physical activities. It’s also great as an anytime snack!
Trail mix contains a little of everything: nuts, dried fruit, whole grains, seeds, chocolate, and seasonings. One serving is about ¼ cup, which can provide 150-200 calories depending on what you put in it. Buying ingredients to make shelf-stable snack foods at home is a great way to spend your CalFresh dollars. Apply today!
