Breakfast Trail Mix: Almonds + Oat Squares + Dried Cherries
It sounds too basic, but this homemade trail mix with just a few simple ingredients has a better nutritional profile than most granolas. Make your mornings easier by shaking the ingredients together in a sealed container as soon as you bring them home from the store. The winning formula contains nuts for plant protein, oat square breakfast cereal for good carbs with fiber, and dried tart cherries, which studies show may help improve recovery and reduce inflammation after running. Substitute other nuts and fruit, like pistachios and dried cranberries, or peanuts and raisins.
