Dairy FreeEgg FreeGluten FreePaleoVegan  Bryan and I are off on an epic road trip tomorrow: eight days, three states, one 90th birthday party, and a heck of a lot of coffee. That’s just how we roll. I mean literally roll. #roadtriphumor These days, I never seem to be able to travel without trail mix, and this is my favorite combination that I’ve had in a long time. You can obviously use whatever is in your pantry and change the proportions to suit your taste. For example, I typically use 1/3 cup of each ingredient, but was a little more….let’s say liberal with the chocolate. Anyway, there isn’t much to say about trail mix, but there is probably a lot to say about road tripping, so feel free to follow me on Instagram if you feel like living road tripping vicariously.  The Best Road Trip Trail Mix
