Trail Mix is a healthy combination of dried fruit, nuts, seeds and sometimes chocolate, which hikers would take along on the ‘trail’ as a convenient and wholesome food to carry with them.

 

Today Trail Mix is not only a favourite snack in the western world, but has become popular with us in India as well. It is now commercially available, but it is recommended that you prepare your Trail Mix at home, so as to ensure that it is packed with health and not too many calories.

 

Trail Mix has basically every healthy component you need in a meal. It has dried fruit like almonds, pecans, dates and dark raisins; granola ( rolled oats and nuts sweetened with honey or brown sugar), and recent Trail Mixes also incorporate cacao nibs which convey all the goodness of chocolate without any empty calories. In fact, with nuts and dried fruit as the key ingredients, Trail Mix can supply nutrients that people often have don’t add to their diet, such as antioxidants, fiber and healthy fats.

 

If you are fond of snacking in between meals, it’s better to munch on a handful of Trail Mix, than to tuck into fried or sweet snacks.The rolled oats and dried fruit contribute to a feeling of fullness for longer stretches of time, so it is the ideal snack option for dieters and weight watchers.

 

Prepare your own Trail Mix at home with rolled oats, white and black sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, roasted almonds, walnuts, dates and black raisins. The crunch and munch always packs a punch!
