If you have been following along with the blog, then you know that 2019 has been the year of “The Swap”. Since the New Year, I have been making conscientious choices to swap out the bad for the good. They’ve all been little and quite painless decisions that have benefited to my overall wellbeing. So, today I am tackling the afternoon snack attack. I’m swapping out empty calories for Blue Diamond Almonds & Fruit.
Every day around 3pm, I hit a low. I have usually been running around like a mad person, without a moments rest. Between parenting and a full-time job, my energy reserves never seem to be quite full. And being an emotional eater, I use this stress as an excuse to treat myself to a mid-afternoon cookie… or brownie… or scone… or box of donut holes. I’m not saying you shouldn’t indulge every once in a while, but my daily habit is out of control. So, it’s time to swap out my mid-day sweets break for a more substantial snack.
I like to feel like I am being spoiled as often as possible, so for this mid-day snack I didn’t want to just opt for plain veggies or a piece of fruit… please don’t send hate-mail, Health Nuts, I get it… but I’m a realist. I need something delicious, sophisticated, and a bit protein-packed. That’s why I was thrilled to team up today with Blue Diamond Almonds & Fruit. Their delicious new line has the perfect amount of elegance to add to my routine. Plus the Almonds & Fruit features the finest California almonds and real fruit pieces, so you know it’s going to be premium quality.
I popped over to Walmart and picked up two of the Blue Diamond Almonds & Fruit varieties: the classic flavor combo of Sea Salt & Whole Blueberry and the intriguingly unique Fiery Ghost Pepper & Tart Cherry. The Sea Salt & Whole Blueberry offers a delectable sweet and salty combination that satisfies the most discerning sweet tooth.
But to me the piece-de-resistance was the Fiery Ghost Pepper & Tart Cherry. A delightfully eye-popping mix of spicy, sweet, and tart, it is a snack that hints at a complex and sophisticated culinary experience. I highly recommend you seek out this bag!
