Before we get too far into this, let me say this is NOT diet food. It’s NOT low calorie but it is healthy. I am not on a diet. My weight has stayed the same for the past several years. I don’t eat sugar. I eat high protein meals and snacks and try to limit my carbs.
I would also say these are snacks we take with us to eat after a hike. They give you a boost after you’ve exercised.
It’s easy to mix your own trail mix and you can change it up according to what you like.
I buy a lot of the bags of nuts at Walmart but many grocery stores have bins of nuts.
Try to buy raw nuts and then mix in a few ‘mixed nuts’ that are roasted and salted. I always add Craisins and raisins…but just a few!
Put them into snack size Ziplocks.
Other healthy snacks that we take for day trips are Sharp Cheddar cheese sticks, Wheat Thins and Pretzels.
Don’t pack a snack bag without fruit! I buy organic apples at the Farmer’s Market.
Slice one up and put it in a baggie!
Oranges and bananas are good too.
Isn’t this little Florida orange cute?
I like to visit a few healthy blogs but if you know of others, please leave them in the comments.
Visit the Low Carb Diabetic HERE. I am not a diabetic but this is good information for ALL of us!
And Latane has a new blog called A Healthy Me HERE!
We ALL know we are going to snack so we need to have some healthy snacks on hand. And we all should have a treat after a good walk to keep us going.
