Is anyone else sad that football season is about to come to a close? While I am hugely disappointed that my Packers didn’t make it to the big game I am still excited to watch it since it’s being played at my home! While I enjoy watching games throughout the season I have to admit … I do it mainly for the food – #NoShame. However I have to admit that most of the time my choices are less than stellar. So when Blue Diamond offered me the chance to team up for healthier game day snacks you KNOW I was all over it.
Blue Diamond sent me two new-to-me flavors to try. I am OBSESSED with the smokehouse. In fact, I am thinking it would be the perfect addition to my beloved BBQ chicken salads. The wasabi & soy sauce would be an excellent combination for an almond-crusted fish. When it comes to healthy snacking though, these nuts are a great option to have on hand!
Almonds are full of amazing nutrients, are an excellent source of protein, and are a fantastic healthy fat to include in your diet. Not to mention they are heart healthy! Almonds are my “go to” throughout the day when I need a pick-me-up and they make a regular appearance as my driving home from school snack. Therefore, having them for the big game sounds like a great idea!
In the meantime I am planning our recipes for our game day. Here are a few other ones I am thinking about making to go with our Blue Diamond almonds.
What are your favorite healthy snacks for game day?

There are two members of our family that are often neglected here on the blog – Trigger and Bailey. In fact, I am not sure I have ever really written about them which makes me feel like a pretty terrible fur-mom. They were our first babies and are a vital part of our everyday lives. […] more

1. Chris is home!!! I don’t talk about him being gone until he’s back but he was out of town ALL week long. It made for an incredibly challenging week for me and the kiddos but we made it HALLELUJAH! 2. One of my favorite things in the world is that Emmie still […] more
