Healthy Snack Mix

I've posted a snack mix before, but I think it was before my days of trying to limit processed foods. So while this mix has processed foods, I went with the best ingredients possible.

I like to make a snack mix when we have a road trip or if we'll be spending time at the beach or at the pool. Just grab a cup-full and snack!

1 box of Kashi Heart-to-Heart Warm Cinnamon Oat Cereal
1 box Post Toasties (wheat & bran cereal)
6 cups stove-popped or air-popped popcorn (you can use microwave popcorn if it's "natural")
1 large bag of M&Ms (I got the dark chocolate flavor)

Mix all ingredients in a large tub. A one cup serving is approximately 125 calories.

Don't forget to visit my main blog Not a DIY Life to follow my journey of parenting and getting healthy!

Only thing I'd add is a cup of almonds or peanuts for some extra protein.

My go-to "snack mix" usually results in some assortment of nuts and M&M's.
