National trail Mix day

Trail mix are very popular snack in America .. It is considered a very healthy snack to indulge , though it is easy to put together the proper proportion and the ingredients combined matters a lot. There should be correct amount of treenuts, dried fruits and candies / chocolates added . Dry fruits are always a healthy option for snacks, in India dry fruits are considered very healthy and it is served for the guest who come for the marriage as a symbol of hospitality. As I belong to a marwari roots we have the tradition of serving dry fruits and nuts to the guest who come to our home. So when ever we have guest before any snacks dry fruits or mawa is offered to them. If some guest are very shy and restraining them to have we try make them feel like home and enjoy the hospitality ( In marwari we call Manwar). In our dry fruit box we generally have a combination of fruits and nuts like cashew, badam, pista are like compulsory  other than that we can have anjeer or dried figs, dried grapes, dried apricots or any even chocolates. In the picture below I have added anardana balls ( pomegranate balls).
