Healthy Snackage - Brain Food

A few months ago I made the decision to return to school and my classes started up in Jan. Since I both work and am going to school right now I needed some fuel. I needed some healthy alternatives to the vending machines. What I came up with is trail mix. It's portable, healthy, filling, and yummy! You can buy pre-made trail mix but I don't know why when you can create your own custom blend of yummies that you know you'll love.

Nuts, seeds, and dried fruit are super nutritious and completely delicious! We keep this stuff in the "snack cabinet" for quick grab and go snacks. I normally grab about a 1/4 cup and put it into a container or zip-top baggy. Then toss it into my book bag.

Here's my batch for this week.

Almonds (super food)
Dried Cranberries (super food)
Dried Apples, chopped
Dried Prunes, chopped
Dried Apricots, chopped
Pumpkin seeds

Easy to throw together a batch for the week! We buy the ingredients all separate so we only get exactly what we like and don't have to pick through to get to the good stuff. You can go to the bulk foods section of the health food stores and get just what you need for the week or grab up some bags and save the leftovers for next weeks batch.
