Hiker mixes are not only useful for hiking. By the way, a rushed day looks strangely like a hike, doesn't it? Time to stop and have a snack can often be lacking. A good hiker mix will replace a full snack without giving us an excessive amount of hydrogenated fat. On the contrary, it will even give you a good source of fiber and good fats, including monounsaturated and omega-3s, if you add nuts to them and choose the oil well to prepare them.
