What day is it?

It certainly has been a whirlwind couple of months for me over here. Between the new home and travel, I’ve been busier than I’d like to admit! But in between all of the craziness I have definitely made an effort to enjoy the summer while it’s here. I managed to take a trip out to California last week and have been enjoying the festivals here in Milwaukee.

One of the things that I have learned about running around in the summer is to always have snacks on hand! Healthy snacks, that is. One of the ways that I flavor my summer adventures is with this easy summer trail mix recipe featuring Blue Diamond Almonds. The protein from the almonds paired with a little bit of carbohydrates and a hint of sweetness makes this the perfect snack for whenever I’m on the go. I like to either keep it in a small mason jar in my summer bag if I’m heading to the beach or I like to put it into a zip-closure bag if I’m heading on a plane or walking around downtown. You just never know when you might need an energizing snack.

Because it’s hot in the summer and I try to keep hydrated, I like to use the Lightly Salted Blue Diamond Almonds in my mix. I like that you still get a little bit of the salty/sweet flavor in this mix without dehydrating yourself with too much sodium.
