Head for the hills! Just don’t forget to pack some snacks to keep you fueled for the trails. Making your ascent is not only treacherous but tiring, which means a pack of pretzels and a box of raisins aren’t going to cut it. What you need is a trail-blazing broccoli salad that’s as fresh as the scenery you’re Snapchatting and as fulfilling as the hike itself. To keep that trail-mix feel, you’ll add diced apple and slivered almonds. A squeeze of lemon juice will keep everything crisp as you crunch, munch and keep climbing.
