It is not a secret that I’m obsessed with Blue Diamond’s Whole Natural Almonds and I’ve been snacking on them every day since I got them. Raw almonds are a great source of protein and fiber, low in sugar and rich in vitamin E, magnesium, calcium and potassium. Often times, when I need a quick snack, I grab a handful of almonds and I’m all set.

I hate the fact that at times, after a workout I don’t have a post workout snack. I needed to do something about it. These are perfect for a snack or dessert.

I haven’t been baking a lot lately. I don’t currently crave a lot of sweets, but when I do, I prefer to make them myself. And they need to be with a healthier touch.

If you aren’t familiar with puffed millet – it is an all natural, whole grain cereal with no added salt, sugar or artificial ingredients. With its complete protein and fat-free composition,  it has been a staple longer than wheat and rice.

It makes a delicious cereal, but I also use it in granola bars and salads. I used it in this Kale Persimmon Salad and it tasted delicious.

Blue Diamond is the Official Snack Nut of USA Swimming, so they know a lot about workouts, workout recoveries and healthy lifestyle.
