Recipe from Rachel Gilman, R.D., Iowa Beef Industry Council

Combine any combination of the following ingredients in a snack-size plastic bag: bite-size beef jerky pieces, peanuts (honey & lightly salted dry roasted), pecan pieces, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, golden raisins and semi-sweet chocolate chunks.  

You can individualize the trail mix to your personal preference by using flavored beef jerky and a variety of nuts, seeds or dried fruits.
