I always have nuts laying around in my house. Either roasted with spices or just raw, I love them all. It’s a great and healthy way for me to get a boost of energy and make sure I eat all the good fat and control my blood sugar to get me through the day at the computer or on the go at a photo shoot.
- 1 cup of raw almonds
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 1½ teaspoon of cajun spices (preferably homemade)
- Pre-heat your oven at 325 and line parchment paper on a baking sheet.
- In a mixing bowl, toss around the raw nuts, olive oil and only 1 teaspoon of cajun spices.
- Roast the almonds in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Once out, sprinkle the last ½ teaspoon of spices on top of the warm nuts, mix gently to make sure all nuts are covered by the extra spices and wait till they cool down before eating them, so the excess oil dry up and they don’t burn your mouth.
