Easy Travel Trail Mix

Trail mix is one of the best things to take on an airplane. This mix is formulated for long-haul plane travel, where you'll need the boost of fiber, protein and healthy fats, to stay energized and full. This mix also contains dried tart cherries, a natural source of melatonin, known to help combat jet lag.
