Travel Trail Mix (Paleo, Plant-Based)

Travel Trail Mix (Paleo, Plant-Based)

Trail mixes make for a great snack when you’re on the go. They’re easy to carry around in a zip-lock bag or small container and the right mix will do a solid job of satisfying a hungry belly in-between meals.

BUT beware … many trail mixes on the grocery store shelves contain nuts that have been roasted at high temperatures, low-quality oils, excess salt, and/or high amounts of sugar from dried fruit.

Since it’s not easy to find a squeaky clean trail mix, I like to make my own. They’re real easy to put together and you have full control over what goes in them. You can get super creative or keep it simple – you’re the boss of your trail mix!

Give my paleo and vegan Travel Trail Mix a try. It’s a great combination of tastes and textures. You won’t get bored of this healthy snack.
