Most people eat trail mix thinking that it’s a healthy choice. And it can be! But, it all depends on the ingredients. If you want to play a fun game, pick up a bag of trail mix at your local store and check out the ingredients list.
Chances are – if it’s just a standard brand – there’s some sketchy ingredients. Whether it’s unhealthy oils, sugar, or preservatives, these are things that we want to avoid when following the Paleo diet.
Thankfully, we don’t have to give up all trail mix. There are ways to make this popular snack choice much healthier and nourishing.
Peanuts and chocolate get an overhaul with this healthy, nutritious trail mix. With the added antioxidant boost from dried spices, you’ll be glad you made the switch.
