Eating a handful of dry fruits, nuts and seeds every day is a great habit for good health. Today's recipe is the 'trail mix' on the go. You can prepare and carry it for your travel, picnics and also for work. I have prepared small jars with roasted goodness and also made a 'fig dressing' to go along with it , if you would like to have it as a 'high protein' meal.
A tasty and healthy snack and like all my other recipes, it is so easy to prepare !
