We are always on the go as a family. But we make sure we head out to my parents’ backyard to relax – a mere 20 minutes from our apartment. Dragons are battled, ships are launched, it’s my children’s oasis in a somewhat crazy world.
My father, who is not the best at connecting with most people, manages to connect with my kids by teaching them about nature, building projects, and food. He’s a wealth of knowledge and I am grateful that my kids have time with him and my mother. Both of my grandfathers passed away when I was 5 and 6 respectively, so I appreciate the times my kids spend with him.
We like to make sure we have healthy snacks with us, whether we’re on the go or noshing in my parents’ backyard. The snacks we offer are healthy and I like Blue Diamond Almonds because offer protein and I can easily pop the can in our tote bag to take along with us. I like the crunchiness of almonds — it’s a better snack choice for my children and I.
I took Blue Diamond Almonds to Austin, Texas in May– see that post).
Blue Diamond Roasted Salted Almonds have 16 grams of fat, 6 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and 85 mg of sodium. If you are watching your salt intake, Blue Diamond Lightly Salted Almonds works for your life. 28 Lightly Salted premium almonds contains 40mg of sodium, 16 grams of fat, 6 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber. Both Blue Diamond Roasted Salted Almonds and Lightly Salted Almonds are certified heart-healthy by the American Heart Association.
The ONLY ingredients in both Blue Diamond Roasted Salted Almonds and Lightly Salted Almonds is almonds, vegetable oil, and salt.
It’s pretty great that we can have adventures, even in my parents’ backyard, as we relax.
And still slay dragons.
