"Trail mix" is appropriately named, since the classic trail mix combination of nuts, dried fruits and chocolates is calorie-dense, packing a lot of energy into a small package. For the backpacker, ever mindful of how many supplies and how much gear can be squeezed into a finite carrying-capacity, trail mix is a top-notch food source. For backpackers who are also vegans, trail mix is easily converted, as most of the contents are already part of the vegan diet.
Tips & Warnings
Although strictly speaking, vegans are concerned with what they eat and not where it comes from, many vegans are also strict about food sources. If you are making this vegan trail mix to be shared among many vegans, a wise idea is to choose only organic ingredients as much as possible.
For a household snacking vegan trail mix, reduce the amount of nuts and chocolate and increase the amount for dried fruits and vegetables.
