I have been guilty of poor snacking choices such as chips and cookies throughout the day. As a busy college student, I sometimes find it difficult to eat three meals a day so I find myself relying on snacks to keep my energy up. One of the best snacking choices I have found is trail mix. It is lightweight, easy to store and can be customized to your favorite tastes, whether you like salty, sweet, crunchy or a combination of all, you can add what you love. I always include nuts for good protein and fat, unsweetened cereal for crunch, dried fruits for vitamins and fiber, and a bit of chocolate for good taste.
1 cup Walnuts
