|Poor Man's Atkins||
Welcome to flavor-town. Population = Me
Almonds are a great snack for us on the go Atkins folk. They offer three things that are essential to any low carb diet.
1. Very Low in carb (um, duh)
2. Great source of fiber. (So you can get those "movements" you have been waiting so patiently for.)
3. Protein (There is nothing funny about protein. Sorry)
With that in mind next time you are going to reach for a snack and you are looking for something that has a little bit more flavor I suggest going with Blue Diamonds line of BOLD favors. Almonds with a bit more taste to them that are a perfect substitute for those flavored potote chips you have been missing so much.
My personal favorite flavor is Habanero BBQ. A little spicy but not enough to burn your mouth off the BBQ flavor also has a nice light sweetness to it. If the spice seems like its to much for you you can try one of the less spicy flavors that Blue Diamond offers like Carolina BBQ, or my other favorite Jalapeno Smokehouse. A great treat to watch the big game with or have during a rousing game of poker with the boys.
These are seriously tasty, full of flavor, and are my favorite nuts I have tried to date. Just remember if you are doing the induction process of atkins its better to stay away from nuts and fruit for the first couple weeks.
