Welcome to Gr(AteFull) Eats;
our newest recipe, Superfood Trail mix!
I know spring and summer are such beautiful times of the year. We travel more during these seasons which makes it harder to eat clean on the go. Today I am sharing with you a recipe for a superfood trail mix that is easy to make, and easy to travel with!
I took this with me camping over the weekend, and I swear it helped keep me alive along with the fresh fruit I packed. My cooler was stocked with a bunch of bananas (literally a bundle, not a bunch), 4 avocados, fresh blueberries, fresh grape tomatoes, apples, one watermelon and trail mix!
Based on my experience and history of all the camping trips I’ve had… the trail mix and fresh food is enough fuel to keep you healthy and active for a whole weekend 🙂 It is recommended to always try to and get a full meal when out in the woods but hey, a full meal can be composed of fruits, veggies, carbs and protein put together in unlikely fashions.
My favorite place to go camping is Suwannee Music Park, in Live Oak, Florida. I enjoy going for some of their weekend festivals each year. They have food vendors; nick nack, clothing and art vendors; live bands, DJs and visual artists; food vendors (tasty and can be healthy but usually fairly pricey); real bathrooms with running water; real showers with running hot water (as long as there are not too many people showering before you… at the big festivals forget it unless you shower at 3 am); and a river to swim and bathe in! It’s a slice of heaven in Florida. I always meet new amazing people and learn new things when I go there.
Without further delay… here is the recipe for trail mix.
It has protein, carbs, fiber, antioxidants, iron, manganese, calcium, vitamins A and E, and more! It is sweet, savory and crunchy.
