Trail Mix, yum yum

19 12 2008

I made a yummy trail mix. All ingredients bought at Trader Joe’s.

roasted, salted almonds
roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
roasted salted, shelled pistachios
dried cherries
chopped dried pineapple (unsweetened)
chopped dried mango
chopped chunks of fruit leather ends (they sell packages of these. It’s like buying turkey or cheese ends from the deli…)

I put enough of each in to make it a pleasing color. This is, I suppose, a good way to go about any sort of ‘cooking’ project. The sunflower seeds are a bit small so they keep sliding to the bottom, and the last handful is always overwhelmingly sunflower seeds. Oh well. It is not too sweet or too salty though.

It’s an experiment to see if I can get enough extra protein and sugar to keep going through the really active days at work. I don’t like regular trail mix because it always comes with peanuts or other things I am picky about. This way I get to make it how I want. Next time I am thinking of putting chopped dates and figs in.

Yum yum.
