Where should you buy the ingredients?

The freshest and most economical way to buy the ingredients for your trail mix is in bulk.   If at first, you want to try some of the recipes, you can purchase them at your local DYI_TrailMixfresh market or a whole foods store.  You will find it is more expensive this way but it is a good way to sample the products to see if you actually like them.  You will definitely get a better price and the product will be fresher if you purchase your ingredients online from a bulk distributor.  We recommend purchasing 5lb boxes and this will fit into most peoples’ budgets   There are numerous sources to purchase from.  I have listed links below to some good outlets where again you will see the difference in price.

How do you put it all together?

Depending on the recipe you choose, the best way to start is add all the ingredients into a large bowl or container.  Mix the ingredients well and measure no more than 1/2 cup of the mix into a resealable snack baggie.  It is possible to eat too much trail mix!.  Try to limit yourself to portions under 1/2 cup.  Just use a simple kitchen measuring cup.  Store your trail mix out of the sun in a dry cool place.  You are now ready to grab the perfect snack when on the road or just because you like yourself so much.   Happy Trails!
