The Trail Mix Trials
Feeding an Addiction or Feeding Your Face?

Movie Munchies

“Angie, look what you’ve started … I got addicted to trail mix and now I have to ween myself off.”

This is a direct quote from my friend and co-worker, Tati.  Pre-TMT, her trail mix addiction was non-existent, but now the girl just can’t get enough.  She started noticing the common signs of trail mix addiction (racing thoughts, thinking about her next fix) and took the first step – admitting she had a problem.

So here’s to you, Tati! Congrats on getting your problem under control and for teaching us a very inventive way to control our trials.
