The Problem With Trail Mix Solved
May 13, 2011 129 Comments
Trail mix should be the perfect snack. It is portable and will stay fresh in your backpack for hours!
The problem is that many packaged trail mixes are in big portions and it can be difficult to stop yourself from eating all of it. Whenever I buy trail mix, I take a good hard look at the nutrition facts and the serving size.
Flanigan Farms has created the perfect trail mix snack because they help you control the portion size.
The individually packaged one ounce portion makes it easy to have a nutritious snack without worrying about how much you are consuming.
These packaged trail mixes don't include chocolate or salt - and they still taste delicious. Here are the nutrition facts for the Nuts 'N' Fruit Trail Mix:
130 calories, 8 g fat, 12 g carbohydrates, 4 g protein, 1 g fiber, 0 mg sodium, 4 Points+
California Almonds, Raisins, Dates (dusted with oat flour to separate), Cashews, Sunflower Seeds, Pepitas (pumpkin seeds), and Dried Organic Fuyu Persimmons (when available)
And, Flanigan Farms has come up with a healthy school fundraiser. The last time a group of students asked me to buy something - it was cookie dough! I just gave them money to avoid the calories (perhaps this was their plan).
I would have much preferred to buy trail mix from a group of students - check out Flanigan Farms School Fundraising if you are looking to help out at your school.
Flanigan Farms is giving away some trail mix to a Snack Girl reader.
