My first experience of Marcona almond was from Trader Joe’s.

Dan and I agreed that Marcona almond mixed with olive oil, salt and rosemary is a good snack to pack for a trip. We normally enjoy a few of this nuts with a cup of decaf latte Breve (made with half and half), and it usually keep us full till we reach our destination.

Since we do not have a Trader Joe’s in Jackson Hole, I buy the roasted and lightly salted Marcona almond online from Mix in more olive oil, pink salt and rosemary, and store it in a glass container.

Whenever you need a little snack before the next meal, this would be my recommendation. But do be aware that nuts do contain carb. So, do limit it to 1 oz a day otherwise the total carb amount will add up.
