Beware of commercial, pre-packaged trail mixes. They are almost always high in fat (salted, roasted peanuts, m&ms, cheese crackers, etc.), and they usually contain unnecessary carbs (candied, dried fruit, and chocolate). Instead, make your own trail mix for a healthy and delicious snack on the go. Combine equal parts raw, unsalted cashews and almonds, and naturally sundried raisins, and you have a homemade trail mix with all the protein and energy and none of the unnecessary fat and carbs. Also, if you miss the chocolate, throw in a handful of dark chocolate morsels to top off the mix.

Originally from Austin, Texas, Josh Specht moved to Houston at the age of 18 to attend Rice University. Three years later, Josh graduated with a degree in English and Philosophy, and, rather unsurprisingly, nothing to do with it. So he packed it up and headed to the San Francisco Bay area to work as a Residential Advisor at a college prep school for underprivileged, underrepresented youth. When he is not working with precocious teenagers, Josh enjoys reading (currently Joyce's Ulysses, and by "currently" I mean for the past 6 months), writing, and exhausting his Netfix queue. Josh's interests include men's fashion, poetry, early 20th century American Literature, movies, and television.
