Navitas Trail Mix and Power Snacks

I was just getting home from doing groceries today when my SNACK attack almost got the best of me! You know when you feel so hungry that you dont know what to eat, so you start snacking on everything...well, I was just about to go down that road and the door bell rang! The post man saved the day! Upon ripping open the box I squealed in delight to find this Berry, Caco Nib and Cashew Trail Mix.

Ahhhh, relief! The sweet dried berries were so "berry" good! However, I love nuts and for my own personal preference I wanted more! So,I added about 1/2 cup of unsalted, raw cashews to the trail mix package, It gave it a little more crunch and balanced out the sweet and tart berries.

I can see me adding this trail mix to a green salad! Mixed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. This would be a perfect companion to add some texture and flavor!

Trail Mix: Ancient nomads were the first to discover the benefits of trail mix: potent wild foods that are portable, full of energy, and do not require cooking.
