(foodie) diy: trail mix
(also known as…”a recipe”? hmmm….)
ANYWAYS, i got this fabulous idea for “do-it-yourself-trail-mix” from my roommate. it’s super simple, loads less expensive and quite fun.
first, i scour my pantry to find anything that might work. this week, i found sunflower seeds and half a bag of dried blueberries (thanks for leaving those behind, Rose!).
next, i go to sprouts, head straight for their bulk bin section and buy whatever they have on “weekly special”, plus anything else that might look good!
i knew the half eaten package of blueberries was not enough fruit for my liking, so i was ecstatic to see dried cranberries on sale. raw almonds were also a steal and i scooped up some plain granola.
i needed to refresh my chia seed stash, so i grabbed a half pound. and to satisfy the chocolate beast, my final addition was vegan chocolate chips.
when i got back home, i gathered all my ingredients,
then i added everything to one bag, closed the bag tightly and did a little dance, maybe i held it over my head and did a couple spins, but you do whatever you’re feeling at the moment 🙂
finally, i placed some of the trail mix into tupperware so they are ready to go!
(just so you know, this batch made a whole lot more than just these three guys)
whatever doesn’t make it into the tupperware is eaten straight from the bag 😉
but now, i always have a go-to snack in case of laziness, fast-food cravings or hunger pains.
body and budget friendly. i call that a success!
so how do YOU combat the urge to eat fast food (or crappy food) while out and about, at work, etc? and what are some of your fun money-saving tricks?
tell me, tell me!
