Full Disclosure: This post brought to you by Blue Diamond. I received Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Almonds in exchange for this post through the Blue Diamond Tastemakers program. As always, all opinions are my own.
With my crazy work schedule, I have kind of a crazy eating schedule too. My meals tend to be switched from most people with my “breakfast” around 6pm, “lunch” around 1am and “dinner” around 7am. With this type of schedule, most of my snacking takes place in the wee hours of the morning and usually at my desk at work.
I try to bring healthier snack options with me to avoid hitting up the vending machine for chips or a candy bar and have found several favorite snacks that work really well for me including veggies and hummus, fruit and peanut butter, air popped popcorn, nuts and homemade trail mix.
When Blue Diamond asked to send me a 5 oz bag of their Oven Roasted Sea Salt Almonds and a 5 oz bag of their Oven Roasted Dark Chocolate Almonds, I of course said yes! If you’ve been reading my blog for any time at all, you know I love Blue Diamond Almonds and generally have several containers on hand at any given time.
While I love snacking on almonds straight out of the can (or in this case their new bags), I also really enjoy mixing them with other flavors as well, so the are great for serving as the base of a homemade trail mix. I love mixing sweet and salty treats together and tend to put together some pretty epic trail mix combinations. I like to mix a variety of nuts and seeds together with dried fruits and dark chocolate and have yet to be disappointed by any of the flavor combinations I’ve put together
I decided to put together a quick trail mix with the new almonds flavors and some other staples I tend to have in the pantry and have been enjoying this treat at work for the past week!
