Wednesday, August 31st is National Trail Mix Day! This is a holiday that I can truly celebrate. Trail mix is a great way to get a good mix of macros to fuel your activities throughout the day.
Nuts.com is having a contest, and I thought it would be fun to get in on the action. Here is my favorite combo! The salty-sweet mix is the best. You get lots of healthy fats from those nuts, and a nice fiber serving from the cereal and cherries. Any what's a trail mix without chocolate?
Superfood Trail Mix

2/3 cup Crackling Oat Bran cereal
2/3 cup shelled pistachios
1/3 cup dried tart cherries

Combine all ingredients in a bag or bowl, toss to mix, and enjoy!
