Hike-Essential Trail Mix

Hike-Essential Trail Mix

Trail mix

The best snacks for a hike are those that a) don’t require refrigeration, b) are mess-free, and c) are packed full of protein and fiber for sustained energy. This simple, nutrient-dense trail mix hits all three marks and for bonus points, it’s so easy to throw together and customize to your liking.

Here’s what I use and the nutrient breakdown: 

  • Cashews – an excellent source of magnesium, the super mineral that is responsible for over 350 enzymatic reactions in the body. 
  • Walnuts – a powerful antioxidant, high in Omega-3’s, as well a good source of Magnesium and Vitamin E
  • Pumpkin seeds – provide ample thyroid support as they are high in iron and zinc
  • Brazil nuts – just 3-4 brazil nuts fulfill your recommended daily intake of selenium
  • Dried unsweetened craisins 
  • Sea salt


½ cup cashews

½ cup walnuts

¼ cup brazil nuts

¼ cup pumpkin seeds

2 TBSP dried unsweetened craisins

A few twists of Himalayan sea salt


  1. Add all ingredients to an air-tight container and enjoy!
