Stash These Super Foods: 3 Easy Trail Mixes

Stash These Super Foods: 3 Easy Trail Mixes

This warm weather seems like it is finally here to stay, which means it's time to get outside! I love creating healthy snacks for hiking trips, and stasher makes them super easy to take on the trail. So, what's better than trail mix?

Here are three twists on the classic trail mix recipe, which were made possible by shopping the bulk section at my local co-op! Just take your stasher bags in, weigh them, and add whatever your heart desires. I love filling up a huge bag of nuts or seeds and then some smaller ones with dried fruit and spices.

 

*Measuring: This is totally up to you! Personally, I like the bulk of my trail mix to be nuts or seeds - this way it's mainly made up of protein and fat with a little sugar from the dried fruits. This keeps my cravings at bay and provides endless energy, especially on long hikes or bike rides.*

3 Easy Trail Mix Ideas

Blueberry Cardamom + Cacao

  • cashews
  • dried blueberries
  • cacao nibs
  • dash of cardamom + cinnamon

Why I like this mix (pictured below):

  • Cashews provide a source of copper - which in turn produce energy and collagen production in the body. Collagen is responsible for hair, nails, and GI health!

Sweet + Spicy Coconut Apricot

  • cashews
  • dried apricots
  • coconut chips
  • dash of cayenne powder

Why I like this mix:

  • Apricots will also keep you energized. They're filled with iron; which may help fight chronic fatigue. They contain beta-carotene, which is known for disease prevention!
  • Cayenne will get your digestive fire moving, thus creating an easy-to-digest environment for dried fruit and healthy fats.

Nut-Free Pepita Muesli

  • oats
  • pepitas
  • cacao nibs
  • coconut sugar

Why I like this mix:

  • You can do so many things with this! Eat it raw as trail mix or bring some nut-milk to enjoy it like muesli. Even soak it in you stasher overnight for a chilled protein-packed meal!
