The Ultimate Trail Mix

Trail mix is a great post-workout snack, but some store-bought versions have added ingredients like sugar, salt and fat. When you make your own you know exactly what's in it and can add exactly the ingredients you love in the quantities you prefer. Here are some great ingredients you can use to make your own trail mix, combining equal parts or adjusting to your preference.
