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

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“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.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“With all the prep work from Winterim ramping up and classes continuing as usual, it's a busy time to be a Forman teacher. Imagine my delight, tired as I was, when I delved into the upscale-restaurant-quality chicken parmesan our dining hall served last night. Forman is all about support, and providing our students with a dinner of that quality is just as important a measure of support as anything that happens in a classroom.”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”

“I’m the GM for Branson [Ultrasonics] and based in the Brookfield office.  This is the first week that the café has been up and running in our new headquarters and just want to acknowledge the great job Adam Schnittert and the CulinArt staff onsite have done.  Our employees’ feedback thus far has been very positive.  The expanded options and menu quality have been very well received.  Just want to send you a quick note of thanks.”

“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.”

“We want to take a moment to celebrate all the employees who worked on the front lines during unprecedented times. Your efforts and dedication to going above and beyond are noticed and appreciated. Thank you for being the heart and soul of CulinArt Group. We couldn’t do this without you. Chef Jay and Chef Paul have been so awesome in the Hubbell Café.  There has been significant change, but they take it in stride and keep the delicious food coming.  We truly appreciate them!”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“Thanks so much for a great week of food here at SCH to start off 2021. Everything has been fantastic. The kids were loving the Chinese food and boxes today. The Moo Shu Pork was amazing. Great work!”
