Trail Mix

Ingredients:

1 pound dry roasted peanuts
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chocolate covered candies (or less)
3 ounces almonds
3 ounces your choice dried fruit

Total cost for two pounds of trail mix? $8. You can make it yourself, only put in the things you want and save $23 per pound. No cooking involved. Store it in an air tight glass container for up to three weeks. You will not be adding the mega dose of salt either.

Ever wonder why it is so salty? Companies salt the trail mix so consumers will drink while they munch. The drink fills you up, not the micro-serving of trail mix. Skip the salt in your version.
