Homemade Trail Mix
QUESTION: What is a good homemade trail mix?
ANSWER: We always say that the best homemade trail mix is the one that contains things you like and will eat!
Of course, you also need to be sure that your homemade trail mix contains ingredients that will give you a steady supply of energy if you're taking it with you on a hiking or backpacking trip.
For example, if you really like almonds, raisins, dried apricots and pecans -- you've just answered your own question. THAT combination would be your best homemade trail mix.
Really. It's that simple.
Just brainstorm a bit about the types of snacks you like and then try to make sure you have a good balance of energy-producing ingredients.
And don't forget that there are some companies who provide custom-made trail mix where you can choose your own ingredients from an online site and they will make your custom trail mix and send it to you.
