Day 8: Trail Mix in a Jar

mini mason jars

Summer is just around the corner (the official first day of summer is June 21).  With the sun staying up later, it’s the perfect season to spend outdoors.  A little survey around the office came up with these outdoor, summertime favorites: BBQ’s, biking, basketball, football, wakeboarding, and softball.  As for me, I can usually be found at one beach or the other.

Aside from maybe the BBQ’s, all of these have the potential to build up a massive appetite.  The solution to those hunger pangs between meals??  Trail mix!  There are endless combinations of ingredients to these easy-to-throw-together-and-go mixtures. This is what we put in ours:

mini mason jars

  • peanuts
  • almonds
  • dried cranberries
  • colorful chocolate covered sunflower seeds

So, put your favorite mix in a mini mason jar for the outdoorsy types in your life.  Or, even better, grab some trail mix for yourself and get outside and have some fun!
