Is Trail Mix a Healthy Snack?

Do you grab a bag of trail mix and think you are eating a healthy snack?  If you are on the trail, burning calories on a hike, climb, etc, trail mix might be a healthy snack for you. Otherwise, read the nutritional label. How much sugar does that little packet contain? If your trail mix is loaded with dried fruit, candies such as M&Ms, chocolate chips, yogurt covered fruit such as raisins, etc, you might be in for a shock.  Make your own trail mix using healthy ingredients or pick one that has lots of nuts, seeds, etc and less dried fruits and other items mentioned above.
