I often get asked for snack ideas or items that are good for on-the-go. I travel a lot and trail mix is a very healthy snack to take with you or even to snack on at your desk. I also keep a ziploc bag full in my car for times that I am gone longer than expected. Make your own so you can avoid the sugar and hydrogenated oils that are in many ready made mixes. If you do decide to add fruit such as cranberries or dried banana chips, make sure they are unsweetened.

4 c. raw nuts of choice
1 c. raisins
