You guys… I had the worst sugar hangover a few days ago.
Like how does that even happen?? Is that even a thing? It surely felt like a thing. And I was NOT ok with it.
Let me fill you in if you missed it on my Instagram stories…
I saw these dark chocolate covered ginger things at the grocery awhile ago. If you know me you know I love dark chocolate. Slather just about anything in dark chocolate and I’ll eat it.
Dark chocolate covered ginger sounded super interesting. So many health benefits with eating ginger like it’s anti-inflammatory properties, anti-nausea effects, lowering of blood sugar, so many things!
After my workout yesterday, I stopped off at Trader Joe’s to grab a few things and I saw a small container of dark chocolate covered ginger. Why the heck not right??
So I dove in on the car ride home. They were DAMN GOOD. So good in fact, that I ate the ENTIRE CONTAINER by the time I got home.
Until the next morning… When I woke up with THE WORST sugar hangover of my adult life.
I don’t eat sugar guys. It’s a rare occasion when I do. And for good reason obviously. It makes me feel terrible!
But I survived the sugar hangover!! Most definitely won’t be doing that again any time soon. Damn you Trader Joe’s!
On another note, whoever told me recently that they add cinnamon to their coffee…
YOU DA BOMB.
If you’re a fan of cinnamon like me, you should totally try it. I threw a little Saigon cinnamon into my coffee the last few mornings and it was REAL GOOD.
But it didn’t mix in all that well. Probably would have been best if I blended it. I’ll follow up on that and let you all know how that goes.
Anyone else add fun (but healthy) things to their coffee? GIVE ME MORE IDEAS.
Ok, so onto the most important part of this post… ROASTED SALTED CASHEWS. But really, the name should be ROASTED SALTED CRACK CASHEWS. Because Danny and I powered through this beastly 40oz Kirkland container in less than a week.
Yeah, A WEEK.
And then we made a concerted decision to never have these at our disposal, ever again.
They are by far the best salty nuts I have ever put in my mouth. The addiction is REAL. I feel like I’m pretty good when it comes to self-control. But not with these guys, NOT WITH THESE.
So I’m happy to share this cashew crack recipe with you all because I know you will not be disappointed. Hopefully, you can practice better self-control than Danny and I.
BUT THIS IS YOUR WARNING.
Don’t make the same mistake I did and purchase a Kirkland size container of cashews to roast. If you want to stay on track with your diet start off small.
I failed. Danny failed. You will fail.
The best part is, they’re stupid easy to make. I took the Kirkland unsalted, unroasted cashews, threw them in a mixing bowl and sprayed them with coconut oil spray.
Then, I spread them out evenly on a pan, threw them in the oven for maybe 10 minutes and sprayed them with salt water when they were done.
