I know I’ve talked about this before, but I’m a trail mix fanatic! The whole idea for my blog name actually came from me snacking on trail mix nonstop in college. My roommate always said I was eating bird food and a few years later when I was brainstorming blog names, the bird food idea came up and it stuck. It fits!

I have to brag about Nuts.com because I’m hooked on their site for a variety of reasons. They seriously have every nut, seed, candy, spice you could ever possibly want, you can design your own custom trail mix AND they carry my absolute favorite Mango Goji Fire Sprouted Trail Mix. My local Whole Foods actually stopped carrying it so I’m absolutely thrilled to know I can get it through Nuts.com now.

Ingredients Needed

This pistachio trail mix has roasted pistachios, rich macadamia nuts, chewy goji berries and raw cacao nibs. It’s a colorful superfood snack that’s low in sugar (and carbs)! The best part — it takes about 5 minutes to whip up and you can bring it with you anywhere. Woot!

I’m actually eating some as I write this post and I have to admit that it’s pretty darn good. The combo of turned out even better than I expected. The goji berries and cacao nibs add just the right amount of sweetness and the pistachios and macadamia nuts give it that crunch factor!

I honestly never think to buy macadamia nuts, unless I’m making this amazing macadamia nut milk, but now that I’ve tried them in this trail mix I might be using them more often. They’re so rich and creamy.
