Totally Terrific Trail Mix

October 12th, 2012 · Lisa · gluten-free, Recipes, Snacks, Sweet · Comments
I’ll be serving up awesome dishes from the menu of my imaginary vegan B&B all month long.

So here we are once again at Friday. Awaiting the weekend ahead and admiring our accomplishments from the week just past. Two wonderful weeks of MoFo under our belts.

I hope you’ve enjoyed being here with me each day, tasting your way through town and settling in for our evening chats over warm cider each night. This morning I thought I’d send you off with something simple: trail mix.

I know trail mix can be found at most convenience stores across the city but I thought you might like a little sweet selection stirred up just for you. I added some chunks of chocolate because…well, life is short, so I don’t believe in passing up the chance to experience a little extra pleasure.

Now that fall is here I suggest pulling on a colourful scarf for a big long walk across the crunchy leaves. There is nothing more beautiful then the colours of autumn in Ontario. Grab your mix, a camera and hit a hiking trail. I’ll be here with that cider when you return. Cheers.

Terrific Trail Mix

  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

    Hi Lisa, I’ve been following your posts for a few months. I love what you are doing this month. It’s fun to read your daily posts, and it may sound silly, but I feel pampered by your welcoming and caring narrative, making me feel like you are actually talking to me and very graciously preparing things you know I’d like! Thanks — you are too kind!

      Thank you so much Eve. I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying the Vegan MoFo series. I would love to actually be able to take such good care of all of my readers. This virtual approach is definitely second best to the real thing.
