National Trail Mix Day | Trail Mix

Trail mix is the ultimate snack – at work, at home, for when you’re sneaking food into the movies…

National Trail Mix Day took the guesswork out of today’s food holiday, for which I am thankful because while it’s a Wednesday afternoon during my lunch break at work as I write this, I’ll be relaxing poolside in Miami by the time you read it. And probably munching on this trail mix at the same time.

We have granola, banana slices, dried fruit, raisins, and nuts – all together for something magical, and in mason jars, which is always cute and makes it even more fun.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend! Look for my Miami recap post this upcoming week!
