National Trail Mix Day!
Celebrate National Trail Mix Day by substituting your fast food with some healthy dried fruit, grains, nuts, and chocolate instead! Trail mix is nutritious and provides a quick energy boost from the carbohydrates in the dried fruits as well as sustained energy from the fats in the nuts. We know your busy schedule doesn't always lend to healthy habits - so change up your routine with a healthy snack today! Happy Monday!
