MyPlate says that you need at least 3 ounces of whole grains every day.
What is considered an ounce?
We eat whole grains to feel fuller faster and to be healthier because whole grains provide our bodies with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and Phytonutrients.
4 cups of your favorite whole-grain cereal like Cheerios
4 cups of plain granola
2 cups peanuts or almonds
2 cups raisins
Dump all the ingredients into a giant bowl and mix together with clean hands. Divide trail mix into small plastic bags or store in airtight containers. This is just delicious. It is a mix of crunchy and soft, salty, and sweet, with some healthy stuff and proteins, too.
