101 Days of Christmas: Festive Holiday Trail Mix

Holiday Trail Mix {101 Days of Christmas at lifeyourway.net}

I know this idea might seem overly obvious, but sometimes the best traditions are born from the simplest ideas!

For example, every year during the week before Christmas, we curl up on the couch to watch Polar Express — my very favorite holiday movie — with a big bowl of popcorn. It’s one of those traditions that we all look forward to as the holidays approach.

Last year, we had an abundance of Christmas M&Ms for some reason, and during the snowstorm the week after Christmas, my grandmother and I put together this holiday trail mix to enjoy with the girls. It was so yummy that I decided it needed to be a part of our Polar Express tradition, and I’m looking forward to breaking it out again this year!

The best part about trail mix is that you can make it with whatever you have on hand. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Trail Mix Add-Ins:

  • stove-top popcorn
  • M&Ms in holiday colors
  • peanuts or other nuts
  • cranberries or raisins
  • candy canes
  • mini marshmallows
  • yogurt-covered raisins
  • pretzels

  1. i really don’t understand why this is such a huge issue these days and so ‘trendy’ to create a no waste lunch. when we were in school (the 80’s), every single lunch was a no waste lunch because we had lunch kits. and in that lunch kit were little ‘tupperware’ style containers, cutlery and a thermos that all fit into the lunch kit perfectly like a puzzle. all our food, drink and snacks were in those containers and we just threw the lids back on, and repacked our lunch kit to take home to be washed for the next day. no waste. it’s not that difficult.

  2. I think it’s trendy because the advent of disposable…everything means that
    most lunches are much-waste rather than no-waste. So it’s a change back to
    the good ol’ days, like most things frugal/green/simple!
