Trail mix is a mixture of high-energy foods that are eaten as a snack. Many trail mixes include items such as dried fruit, nuts, chocolate and seeds. Trail mixes can help someone to lose weight by replacing the sweets and other junk food that people tend to snack on. Trail mixes are available at the grocery store, but most of the pre-packaged trail mixes contain a lot of hidden sugar content, as well as tons of sodium.

A good way to avoid these extra pitfalls is to make trail mix at home. All you have to do is follow a recipe and in no time, you will have your own treat. If you make a small amount, you can pack it in a Ziploc baggie and bring it with you when you are on the go. If you make a large amount, you should store it in a plastic, airtight sealed container.

There are many variations when it comes to making trail mix. Sometimes you can increase or decrease the amount of what you add to various recipes to fit your needs.
