Happy, happy Friday friends! We got about 5 inches of snow on Tuesday and now tomorrow, we’re expecting more snow and ice. Hello winter!!! So, it looks like it’ll be one of those weekends where we just buckle down, stay home and get nice and cozy in the house. Oooooh…actually it sounds like a perfect weekend to do some baking, don’t you think!?! Also, I really, really need to do some wrapping. I mean…Christmas is right around the corner!
Anyway, on today’s Power Foods Friday, we’re talking almonds. Almonds are by far my favorite go-to afternoon snack. Oftentimes around 3 p.m., my stomach starts to grumble and I have a hard time concentrating. I find that a handful of almonds (sometimes combined with an apple or another piece of fruit) gets me out of that funk and holds me over until dinnertime. I make sure to keep them in my desk at work or in my purse at all times. I love them raw and roasted. I also buy slivered almonds a lot and add them to my Greek yogurt bowls, to baked goods, oatmeal and I even throw them in my morning smoothies.
I’ve blogged about these before, but they’re SO good and definitely worth mentioning again!
How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
What’s your favorite way to eat almonds?
Any plans for the weekend?
Totally random question…do know of any healthy breakfast casserole recipes? I’ve been looking for a different breakfast option for during the week and a I think a casserole would fit the bill.
