[FHCx47] National Almond Day

Oh, Amygdalus…


Here’s to almonds: plain, salted, cinnamon roasted, chocolate covered, Jordan… Almonds are great for all sorts of reasons. It’s “nutritionally dense” which means it carries a lot of vitamins and minerals per gram. As opposed to chocolate cake, which is deliciously dense, and carries a lot of sugar and fat per gram.

But for real. SP has a hard enough time getting lunch eaten during the school day. You really don’t get much time as a teacher, and that makes choosing lunch very important. For a very long time, his go-to has been a turkey sandwich with potato chips and an apple, possibly with a chocolatey something for the end. Over time, the need for the chocolatey thing mattered a lot less. Most recently, there was a paradigm shift as chips were no longer a major part of the SPAK household. It was just getting too hard for the two of us, so we really eat chips sparingly these days.

That meant finding a low-calorie, filling side to go with the sandwich. One option that SP has found that works really well is almonds. And it seems he’ll never get tired of them!

Tomorrow is Cabbage day and Cafe Au Lait day!
