At the beginning of the year I bought all sorts of snacks because I was worried that I would not have time to make them with the new schedule change. I bought them in bulk on amazon.com, so they lasted a long time. Some of the snacks were better then others, but my absolute favorite was Enjoy Life Just Seeds, Not Nuts Mountain Mambo Trail Mix. I went to buy some more, but worried about the effect that purchase would have on my budget. Then I realized…I had everything in my cabinet to mix up that trail mix. All I had to do was buy some snack bags and I was set. I enjoy making my own even though it is a tiny bit more work as I get to add some coconut chips which I enjoy and I get to change up the ingredients like substitute golden raisins for regular and some orange flavored cranberries.
