MIDWAY, FL - Today on What's to Eat we are making trail mix for those who need a snack while being active.

Ruth Nickens with Tallahassee Senior Center is helping us whip up the snack for the Senior Games.


4 cups roasted unsalted cashews

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 cup dried mango pieces

1 cup dried banana chips

1 cup large coconut flakes

2 cups sesame sticks

1 tbsp. curry powder

1 tsp. ground sea salt

1 tsp. turmeric

½ tsp. cumin

½ tsp. dried ground ginger

¼ tsp. garlic powder

¼ tsp. paprika

¼ tsp. ground red pepper

1) Mix all spices together in a small bowl. Adjust to taste.

2) Pour cashews into large bowl. Stir in olive oil and seasonings. Mix well. Spread on cookie sheet. Roast in 300 degree oven for 10 min until golden brown. Stir frequently to avoid burning nuts. Remove from oven to cool.

3) Blend dried fruit, sesame sticks and curried cashews in a large bowl. Store in large glass jar.
