Smoked almonds are the perfect pick me up snack for afternoon munchies. Use them as a substitute for trail mix or for a game time snack.
Let's talk snacks during the summertime. Sometimes....they just get old. Boring. I find myself so busy that I just grab and go with whatever is around. Which is usually chips, crackers, fruit or some other sort of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates fuel my summer, but they aren't the best choice. A small amount of protein as a pick me up in the afternoon takes longer for your body to digest than carbohydrates--which means you will probably feel fuller and eat less.
These smoked almonds are perfect for a game time snack, your next hike or an afternoon snack.
Almonds can be really expensive! To save money, I wait until they go on sale. Often I can find a good sale where they are $4 a pound and stock up so they are less than buying them. (Lately they've been $6.98 a pound--ouch!)
