Sounds good.

We get Walmart's Great Value Cajun Trail Mix. Has a nice kick to it.

Alix's Nuts and Bolts mix is good if you want to make it yourself. I'm feeling lazy lately so I think I'll try the Walmart version you recommended, Dawg.

It's so hard to cook for one.

I ain't sure I want my trails mixed. At my age, I prefer them level or with a slight downward grade.

I always make my own....and it varies...walnuts, cashews, pecans, raisins (gold and regular), craisins, sunflower seeds and sometimes I get some minced dried fruit. I am not a big fan of peanuts so i usually don't put any in my mixes...and I seldom put M&M's or any type of chocolate in it either.

Buon Giorno,

Thank you for the Interesting Post topic.

I am extremely disciplined, so I have 5 nuts per morning for breakfast before going horse riding, speed walking or to the Gym or to Work ...

My faves are:

Brazil Nuts, Macademias, Pistachios, hazelnuts and walnuts ...

I rarely have eaten in between meals, as I do not eat just to eat and am quite petite and extraordinairely active ...

I prefer to eat my proper meals for breakfast and the main for lunch ... dinner is normally quite light ...

Have a great wkend,
Ciao, Margi.

My friend Patty told me she stays so slim by keeping a bowl of trail mix out where she can nibble on a few bites occasionally.

I make my own as well and when I can I dehydrate some of my own fruit, specially banana chips and raisins.

I use a variety of things but it always includes raw nuts and seeds, apricots, raisins, unsweetened dried cranberries, etc.

We use this as a munching snack as most of the bought ones have things that either or both of us can't tolerate!
