Summer Fun with Blue Diamond

Almonds are simple for summer with the delights of being outside and on the go.  I thought the best way to show this would be with my trip to the East Coast over the weekend for Fitbloggin.  I packed up my tin of Blue Diamond Toasted Coconut  Almonds and headed out on an epic journey.

First I am glad I packed them in carry-on luggage because when I got to the airport the restaurants were closed and I did not grab dinner.  This was a good alternative to the snack machine dregs I tried to navigate.

Then during the four-hour road trip to Savannah from Atlanta my tummy clock went off again and these little powerhouses were right there.

Finally I had to take the day further with four hours of kayaking including battling the incoming tide from the Atlantic.  I needed fuel! The tin packed well in my wet bag.

The trip was not quite planes, trains, and automobiles but switch out the trains with the kayak and you are there.  This tin was versatile and compact along the way.

For those curious about the ingredients, for the most part they were wholesome with ingredients that I could identify.  I was sent a Toasted Coconut tin and a bag of Blueberry flavored almonds.  The Blueberry ones had blueberry juice and red cabbage juice but I opted to leave them home because the stevia left an aftertaste for me.  I liked the Toasted Coconut a lot with “caramel color” being the major question mark for me.  I generally like my almonds plain – so the flavoring was new for me.  I would consider getting the Toasted Coconut again as a treat while out on the road for sure.
