Not Nuts! Trail Mix from Enjoy Life Foods - Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Peanut-Free, Dairy-FreeAlisa Fleming ~ One of the great things about vacationing with six other “free from” bloggers and cookbook authors is the ability to eat everything in sight. Er, wait … that may not be such a great thing after all. Well, packing on just a couple of extra pounds was worth the relaxing and worry-free break at the beach that I recently enjoyed with good friends. Every last morsel was gluten-free AND dairy-free, a paradise smorgasbord for this group of food-loving friends. There were amazing breakfasts, power lunches, hearty dinners, almost-virtuous desserts, and of course, we couldn’t let our stomachs sit idle for a second, so there had to be snacks …

I adore Enjoy Life’s mini chocolate chips, but did find myself diving into the Beach Bash just a bit more. Perhaps it was that coastal vibe driving my cravings at the time. I didn't get a vote from the others on which one was best, but judging by the sizable dents in the snack bowls, I'm guessing that they were equally enjoyed.

Not Nuts! are great all-around mixes for packing along (think airplanes, running errands, classrooms, or even watching football!), and for baking into great recipes like these …
