healthier snacking

roasted almonds I have this habit of trying to clean up my act (at least somewhat) in advance of my annual blood work. So I have, for the time being at least, sworn off bags of fun size Snickers in favor of roasted almonds. I used to make them all the time up in Gilroy and I thought I needed to get back to that. Healthy. Good for cholesterol.

It’s really easy.


  • Raw almonds from the bulk section of the grocery store
  • Olive oil
  • Your favorite seasoning (preferably salt-free)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Put enough olive oil in a bowl to cover the almonds.
  3. Add your favorite salt-free seasoning.
  4. Toss the almonds in the mixture
  5. Spread out in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for ten minutes.
  7. Let the almonds cool off and then store in an air-tight container.

Voila! A tasty, healthy snack!
