How to Make Tasty Homemade Trail Mix
Trail mix is a type of snack originally eaten by hikers. Typically, it consists of chocolates, dried fruits, and nuts. There are so many trail mix varieties available these days. But are these on-the-go snacks healthy? Well, it's up to you to decide.
I really enjoy eating trail mix since it is packed with different flavors and textures of my favorite snacks. However, I make sure not to consume more than 1/8 cup per snack time - not more than twice daily. It is important to control my intake because it may contain more calories than nutrients. Like we all know, having too much can be deadly. So is it healthy or not? It depends on the person.
