Chef's Note

With cold weather and less sunshine looming for another few weeks, it’s hard to keep the energy up to not just tackle your day, but hit the fitness and health goals you set for yourself in January. More than ever, it’s important to encourage people to be the best versions of themselves this season.

Celebrity trainer Paul Vincent has trained the stars for action-packed Oscar-nominated movies “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “Blade Runner 2049” – but you don’t have to wield a lightsaber to tackle your day full-force! “You don’t need to rearrange your entire schedule to eat healthy and stay fit,” says Vincent. “Incorporating almonds into your snacks will provide you with the protein and fiber your body needs to help you own the day in a positive way.”

Vincent has created this almond snack that provide the protein, fibre and key nutrients needed to power through whatever the day holds, whether that be hail, hard deadlines or ‘hanger’. You like to walk, jog, climb ... then add the 3 other ingredients to the basic recipe and you get a delicious trail mix for your next hike.
