Almonds are one of my favorite snacks, and since I started doing Weight Watchers again, I am always looking for low-points snacks that are satisfying and have enough protein to keep me fueled, especially as I have been ramping up my summer training. So I was happy to get two new flavors to try. I love natural almonds, but it's fun to mix things up with some new flavors.
After my run today, I refueled with a yogurt bowl that included chocolate-flavored nonfat Greek yogurt, fresh blueberries, and 14 chopped Toasted Coconut Almonds. This was a 6 PointsPlus snack that tasted almost like a sundae and packed 16 grams of protein. It has been hot so I also had a tall glass of water.
My husband, who is a berry fanatic, claimed the Blueberry almonds for snacking in his basement man cave while watching the U.S. team in the World Cup.
While I was out shopping for dinners for the week, I was thinking about Fitbloggin' -- I leave Thursday and wanted to plan some healthy snacks to take along. I found my favorite flavor of Blue Diamond Almonds -- Dark Chocolate -- and decided to make up some 2-PointsPlus snack bags (12 of the Dark Chocolate or 14 of the Toasted Coconut). I packed up a few of each and have them ready to drop into my carry-on.
How are you fueling your summer fun?
