Summer Picnics and Cinnamon Sugar Snack Mix

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of VONS and Pavilions. The opinions and text are all mine.

Last week we got together with some of our favorite people to do just that – spend a day together outside in the sun. We started with an adventurous hike along the coastline in Malibu, then spent time chatting over delicious food, and connecting after what has been a crazy summer. It was the perfect summer day and one I can’t wait to repeat.

Now the key to any great picnic or summer adventure is gathering tons of tasty provisions to fuel your day. That’s why I teamed up with my local Los Angeles Vons & Pavilions to grab some of my favorite things to create the perfect picnic. With a huge selection of healthy prepared foods, cheeses, fruits, veggies, and snacks – it’s a one stop shop for everything you need.

To get our picnic menu started, I stocked up on roasted chicken, sliced watermelon, and spinach salad. Then I moved on to my favorite part – the snacks! Since any good picnic needs chips, I grabbed some Veggie Harvest Tomato Basil and Cheese SunChips (they are so good and have just 140 calories per serving!) and Cinnamon Life Cereal for an amazing sweet and savory snack mix (recipe below). Finally, I reached for Aquafina bottled water since I knew we would all be thirsty after the hike.
