I try to stay away from premade packaged trail mixes because they are often loaded with added sugar, salt, and sometimes even artificial colors and flavors. However, I am always making my own clean nut mix for an easy grab-and-go snack! Mix your favorite raw nuts and seeds with a few dried berries and throw them in a small Ziploc bag. This is a great energy-boosting snack when you need that extra push come 2 p.m.! Just be mindful of the portion size. Although nuts and seeds are super nutritious, they have a high calorie content, so it’s easy to overdo it. Fill each baggie with a handful of the nut mix, store them in the fridge (yes the fridge!) to keep them fresh, and stick to only one baggie per day.
