Only 4 days until we leave, and I can't get France off the mind... So, that means we are talking about snacks for flying today! Get excited! (For a full list of what I am planning on taking on our flight, see this post. PS. I would be so very grateful if you clicked on the links in the last post :)
I highly doubt that I am the only person who finds airport food absurdly overpriced, but whenever I am in the airport, the things that I have brought along to eat on the plane always sound terrible and all the delicious, unhealthy choices in the airport sound way more fun and fabulous.
I have realized that bringing raw carrot sticks to the airport just isn't an option for me. I won't eat them and I end up resenting their presence in my bag.
For this trip, I have a few tasty tricks up my sleeve for relatively healthy and easy snacks. These almonds are a great choice, or I might make these granola bars, or possibly some crackers, and then maybe a piece of fruit, or some dried mango or something. Whatever I end up taking, you had better believe it is going to be more delicious than a carrot stick.
serves 2 (depending on how many almonds you like to eat)
1/2 cup raw whole almonds
1/2 tsp coconut oil
2 tsp powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
1/4 tsp finely ground sea salt
Toast the almonds at 350°F for 6-9 minutes or until golden and fragrant. Put in a bowl with coconut oil and stir until almonds are coated. In a jar or tupperware, put the sugar, cocoa powder and sea salt and stir until thoroughly combined. Add almonds, and shake until the almonds are coated. Enjoy!
