St. Patricks Day Trail Mix

Last week someone asked me for a great trail mix recipe. I quickly threw some ingredients I had on hand: granola, almonds and chocolate covered goji berries and made this super easy St. Patricks Day Trail Mix just in time for the holiday. It makes a great early morning or after workout pick-me-up or afternoon snack. Here are a few of my other favorite St. Patricks Day recipe ideas:

Kid’s Cooking Class at Park City Mountain Resort

Last week, I spent spring break in the incredibly beautiful Park City, Utah. I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to teach a Kid’s Healthy Cooking Class at Park City Mountain Resort making Apres Ski Snacks.

The kids had a blast making four recipes starting with Mini Banana Bread Loaves made with Greek yogurt and ground flaxseed.

I loved working with the staff at the Park City Mountain Resort. They made it so easy for me even though sometimes it’s tough working back in a big resort kitchen. I was looking for a masher for our banana bread, and this is all I could find.

I do appreciate all of wonderful help from Krista, Mike and Deirdra. Y’all are the best, and I had such a great time working with you!

Since it was St. Patrick’s Day, we also made a healthy Herb Dip appetizer that the kids devoured.

They also especially loved preparing the Homemade Granola Bars. It was one of the more difficult recipes, but definitely worth it.

The kids also made homemade make-your-own pizzas. Everyone used their own unique touch. When the food came out of the oven, everyone was ready. They were happy (and hungry) to eat all of their healthy homemade snacks, especially after a long day of skiing.

Be sure to check out Park City Mountain Resort and Snowmama’s the next time you’re thinking about a wonderful family vacation. My kid’s had never skied before, and they were off and running after a day of lessons from the wonderful instructors here. We all had a wonderful time and can’t wait to go back!
