Snack Well with Trail Mix

When you’re feeling “hangry” (hungry + angry), it’s helpful to have a go-to snack that is full of nutrition and is satisfying! You’ve probably heard recommendations to reach for a handful of nuts between meals to keep hunger at bay, but we’re taking that a step further with trail mix.

Store-bought versions can often contain added sugar, salt and preservatives, so why not try tossing together a batch of your own fresh mix? Here are some popular, tasty combos we love:

Fall Fusion
1 cup diced dried apples
1 cup diced dried pears
1 cup diced dried figs
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 1/2 cups unsalted raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Chocolate Power Mix
1 cup dried bananas
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup pepitas
1/4 cup cacao nibs or dark chocolate morsels

Tropical Trail
2 cups sliced dried peaches
1 cup dried blueberries
1 cup sliced dried mango
1/2 cup shelled pistachios
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts

Look for a Snack Well build-your-own trail mix station in your CulinArt cafe to make your own nutritious and delicious combo!

What our clients are saying

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”
