About the Nuts
In honor of the Presidential call to get outdoors, I thought it would be interesting to round up the best snacks to bring along on your outdoor adventure!

Proclaimed by the White House, Great Outdoors Month encourages all Americans to explore the great outdoors. Of course, it’s important to stay full with wholesome snacks on the trail. lanters has recently introduced two new trail mix products – Alaskan Wilderness Trail Mix and Appalachian Blend Trail Mix – both of which contain natural, wholesome ingredients to keep hikers and campers energized and ready to explore the great outdoors.

My Take on the Products
I was quite impressed with this snack mix. Full of great energy boosting items, this mix provides the perfect pick-me-up whether you are out on the trail, or sitting in your office. I particularly enjoyed the dried fruit that was in the mix, as I am always interested in being health with fruits. In saying this though the nuts were great as usual!

So if you are looking for some great snack mixes that are healthy and filling, look no further than these mixes. Overall, these mixes take snack mix to the next level. With a combination of health and flavor, how could you go wrong?

While physical activity is necessary throughout the entire year, being outdoors in the summer time has additional benefits. The sun provides us with lots of Vitamin D that many people are deficient in. However, Vitamin D Vitamin D regulates blood pressure, reduces stress and tension, relieves body aches and pains by reducing muscle spasms, reduces respiratory infections, helps in differentiation of the cells, aids in insulin secretion, helps fight depression, improves overall skin health by reducing wrinkles, makes skin soft, strong, and smooth, and improves cardiovascular strength by providing a protective lining for the blood vessels.

So, get outdoors ASAP and start getting your vitamin D fix!
