This is a satisfying, nutrient-rich combination that's crunchy and can be lightly salted for a sweet-and-salty blend. "Pistachios have fewer calories than most nuts with the largest portion size, as you get 30 pistachios for 100 calories," says Harris-Pincus.

"Almonds provide crunch, protein, and heart-healthy fat, while cranberries offer a tart flavor and vitamin C," says Hultin. Just be sure to choose a variety that's sweetened with fruit juice rather than added sugar or syrup to better support weight loss.

"Walnuts are an omega-3-rich nut that is considered heart-healthy and could even help calm inflammation in the body, and raisins are commonly unsweetened and easy to find in any store," says Hultin.

Combining nuts, seeds and fruit is the perfect trifecta for a balanced trail mix. Use shelled, lightly salted sunflower seeds and plain, unsalted pecans to avoid overdoing it on the sodium. "Find mango that's plain and not coated in sugar, and chop it so it blends into the mix easily," says Hultin.

"Freeze-dried fruit is a fabulous add-in for trail mix because it has a fraction of the calories of dried fruit and provides crunch and volume," says Harris-Pincus. Combine peanuts and strawberries for flavor, antioxidants, fat, protein, and fiber.
