Brain Food Snack Mix

Kimi Gaines


When my daughter Ashley was in college they would make this during final exams. When she came home she made a batch for the family. It is really a great snack for kids, camping, walking the trails and for lunch boxes or a pick me up in the middle of the day when you get that afternoon yawns.
