Grab-a-Snack Mix

Author: Canadian Living

Forget the chocolate bars and potato chips. Consulting dietitian Fran Berkoff suggests having a high-carbohydrate snack with just a little low-fat protein at least two hours before your workout for maximum energy. (The food needs to be digested for the energy to be used efficiently by muscles.) This trail mix fills the bill and is easy to tote.

  • Portion size 500 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat cereal square
  • 1/2 cup raisin
  • 1/3 cup banana chip broken
  • 1/4 cup dried apricot quartered
  • 2 tablespoons chopped toasted almonds

Method

In glass bowl, mix together cereal squares, raisins, banana chips, dried apricots and almonds. (Mix can be covered with plastic wrap or transferred to resealable plastic bag for up to 2 weeks; do not store in airtight container.)
