Trail Mix revisited

How to make great, nutritious trail mix

1/2 part almonds
1/2 part macadamias (expensive but worth it)
1 part peanuts (I know I dissed them in this post, but those little bastards have protein, fiber, and the kind of fat that may decrease heart attacks).
1 part dried soy nuts
1 part pepitas or American pumpkin seeds (low in calories, high in magnesium and iron)
2 parts cranberries (a must; flavored varieties add different kinds of zest)
1 part dried pineapple
1 part raisins (these less-than-tasty little bastards are rich in iron)

No chocolate-covered anything. No "yogurt"-covered anything. No carob, you sissy!

EAT UP FOR PEP. NOW YOU ARE SO HEALTHY YOU CAN OUTRUN A HORSE IN YOUR SOCKS. But why is the horse wearing your socks? I don't know; what am I, Answer Guy?

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm trail mix. Agree Macadamia nuts are worth every penny.

I love trail mix and that recipe sounds really good. I agree about the no chocolate of carob rule.
