This week, in honor of Mother’s Day, Out of the Box Food is sharing a healthy and delicious snack for moms and kids alike (Ah, who are we kidding….everyone will love ‘em: dads, grandparents, friends, friends-of-friends, cousins of friends-of-friends…you get the gist) These Rosemary-Garlic Almonds are delicious and nutritious and by starting with whole, raw almonds, we have control over the sodium in this wholesome snack.
Pair these freshly roasted almonds with a wedge of good cheese, sliced baguette and some fresh berries and you’ve got yourself a healthy, satisfying lunch. Or even toss them into a fresh garden salad to up the protein and add a savory crunch.
