Living Without Excess: Homemade Trail Mix
This yummy mix of nutrient dense, high energy nuts, seeds, and dried fruits, makes an easy snack, great travel food, or a late night treat while watching a movie.

A teaspoon of oil and honey coats everything so that the salt will stick (so less is needed), which adds to the flavor. Just about any combination of fruits and nuts will make a tasty trail mix, or "gorp" (good old raisins and peanuts).
