I prefer to make my own trail mixes so I head to BARE ESSENTIALS health food store in Boone, NC and choose from the large selection of organic ingredients they have on hand. One whole wall of the store is lined with the most awesome collection of anything from raw nuts, dried fruit, seeds, granolas, wasabi peas, and to many more items to mention here. It is my favorite store in Boone and the staff and owners go out of their way to make you feel at home while you are there and assist you in any way they can, be it with your grocery needs or health supplements. Be sure and check them out if you have not been there before and tell them I sent you.

My favorites for trail mix are:

Raw almonds, macadamia nuts, pistachios, and walnuts

Dried apples, cherries, pineapple, cranberries and blueberries

Raw pumpkin, sunflower, flax, and sesame seeds

Organic granola, oat bran sesame sticks, crystalized ginger, chocolate covered crystalized ginger, dark chocolate covered raisins, and wasabi peas

Just mix it all together and enjoy!

"If we eat better, if we eat in a more natural way — regardless of what our budget is, we all can do it — we realize it is possible to feel better, to look better, to make ourselves as healthy as we can be. That's the goal. For me it's all about health.”~Dr. Jana Klauer
