I’m always looking for more options for savory snacks to take when I go out and play. I work at REI, so I have daily access to granola and energy bars of all kinds, as well as goos, chews, and drink mixes. But they are ALL SWEET! I’m not a big sweets fan in general, but I’d be sick of it all even if I were.

To Go Orange Sesame Almonds

Nuts are a great vegetarian source of protein, so I have lots of them around my house. They can be used in all sorts of dishes, but if you make them flavorful on their own, they are perfect to take with you wherever you may go. These orange sesame almonds are similar to the commonly found tamari almonds I’ve seen around, but offer a more subtle and bright flavor combination. I throw a jar of orange sesame almonds into my backpack and take them to work, to the climbing gym, or even skiing.
