Trail Mix: Good Until It's Not .

My latest food addiction has been self-made trail mix. That's right, I don't buy the junk that companies make for you labeled "Trail Mix". I prefer to put in there what I want. Given my poor college kid status, it's a great way to keep yourself from going hungry. Last night I had some as a snack, and ended up not even being hungry for dinner. It's seriously like magic... and delicious!!

So what do I put in this magical delicacy? Simple. Loads of honey roasted peanuts (which, oddly enough have less fat that the dry roasted ones... I checked), then loads of M&M's, then loads of Craisins. You can use raisins if you want to, but I definitely prefer the cranberry kick. Another option that I've done before is gotten whole almonds to go in there. Overall, it's the perfect mix of sweet and salty.

The funny thing, though, is that when you start eating it, it's amazing; it's addictive and you just can't stop shoveling down your mouth. After a bit though, you start getting full.. and then each time you reach for a handful, it's just not good anymore and you have to stop.

Wait wait wait... a food that tells you when you're supposed to stop eating? Is it too good to be true? Maybe :) But I still love it!
