I’m a big snacker. A big salty food snacker. That means that I won’t often reach for cookies instead I’ll reach for chips. Which frankly, isn’t much better for you.

Taking a cue from The Flavor Bible (Don’t forget to leave a comment here for your chance to win a copy) I decided to toss freshly toasted almonds in a mixture of garlic powder and black pepper. It is the perfect, guilt free snack.
