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

“I wanted to let you know that for this entire school year I have been so well fed! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE all the diversity of salad choices we have each day and the amazing entrees.  My favorites are the carnitas, chili, curry, and cajun chicken days.  I am so grateful for all the care that goes into the food because I know I do not eat enough vegetables or balanced meals without you and your crew's work.  Thank you so much!  You take such great care of us!!”

“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.”

“This has been a year of unprecedented uncertainty, but through it all, Denee, chef Darby, Samantha, and the whole CulinArt team, provided the best dining experience the school has had in my thirteen year tenure.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with them, and I can't wait for next year when the craziness of COVID brings everyone back into the dining hall for meals. We look forward to working with Denee, Chef Darby, Samantha, and the rest of the CulinArt team again next year.”

“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.”

“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!”

“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.”

“I just wanted to express my thanks and give two thumbs up for the updates to our lunch menu. My selections have been quite tasty—corned beef Reuben, jambalaya—and I appreciate that, too! I am looking forward to trying some new items in the coming weeks. Keep up the good work!”

“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!”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”
