Wednesday: Proteins, legumes, nuts, seeds
We are still on vacation (don’t worry, I’m not actually writing these posts on vacation). I will post about our fun hiking excursions for Friday’s exercise day.
But a perfect hiking snack is trail mix!! Make your own though! Its not hard, it so much cheaper, and doesn’t include things like M&M’s and too much salt. Here are some ideas for making your own with things we like in ours.
- shelled pistachio’s
- dried cranberries (without added sugar)
- Dried pineapples
- Dried apple chips
- Soy nuts
- pumpkin seeds
- sunflower seeds
- Dried apricots
- Mini- Chocolate chips
Anything I forgot? We pack the mix into snack size baggies. Each kid carries their own Hydration packs , which are completely adorable themselves, with trial mix and fruit leather tucked inside.
