Many commercial trail mixes are too,sweet, too salty and have too much fat. If you live on gorp when you’re camping or traveling, or always grab a trail mix when you eat at your desk, it’s important to eat right. Here’s a savory, “main dish” gorp. Make a sweet gorp for dessert if you like, or just have a handful of chewy, dried apricots. 




String Cheese Snack Gorp

3 cups string cheese pieces, cut in bite size
1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash seasoning (any flavor) 
3 cups Crispix cereal
3 cups brown rice crisps (e.g. RiceWorks gourmet brown rice crisps)
1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash seasoning
1 cup unsalted walnut halves
1 cup unsalted pecan halves
Put cheese pieces in a big bag with 1 tablespoon seasoning and shake gently to coat.  Add cereal, crisps, nuts and the other tablespoon of seasoning. Shake gently and package by the cupful to make a meal or pack by the half cup for snacking. Complete the menu with spring water or a carton of milk.

Bonus Recipe
Wakame Gorp
The salty sea taste of wakame seaweed flakes compliments the tuna jerky while crackers and no-salt puffed rice add carbs. A burst of sweetness from the pineapple adds a tangy contrast. 

9-ounce package of Hawaiian style ahi tuna jerky 
2-ounce package wakame flakes 
2 packages, 3 ounces each, Tokyo style rice crackers 
8 cups puffed rice
3 cups diced dried pineapple

Cut jerky into bite size and combine everything in a big bag or bowl. Mix well. Seal in snack bags and keep in a cool, dry place. Complete the meal with spring water or Japanese beer.
