Mix It Up

Before I jump into sharing a beloved workday treat, I wanted to just mention that this marks my 100th post. I didn’t think that I would keep up with this as I have and, while it’s not launching me into the commingling worlds of fame and fortune, it has allowed me to pursue a creative outlet and share what I like to do best. Here’s to the next 100.

Trail Mix Parts

The office is one of the only places that I can control my food consumption. True, I have a well-stocked snack drawer but, when I limit what is available for munching I have less of a reason to overindulge. That is unless there is a chocolate chip cookie bake off on your floor.

Make-your-own trail mix is one of my favorite snacks. I can’t claim complete originality on this recipe, but it is easy enough to add in or trade out whatever “ingredients” you choose. Just watch out for portion sizes!
