In the past, I’ve had a tendency to vacillate between eating to live and living to eat, but now I’m aiming for a place between these two extremes. A place that is neither feast nor famine. A place where enjoying good food is as beneficial to my body as it is to my soul.
Chipotle and Rosemary Roasted Nuts from Ina Garten fit this philosophy perfectly. The recipe for these amazing nuts comes from Barefoot Contessa How Easy Is That?: Fabulous Recipes & Easy Tips.
The nuts are a mix of cashews, pecans, walnuts and almonds glazed with maple syrup, brown sugar, and freshly squeezed orange juice, then seasoned with rosemary, salt and chipotle powder. The result is a scrumptious sweet and salty combo with a little kick of smoky heat from the chipotle. Yum!
These roasted nuts are hands-down the best I’ve ever tasted. They are also super healthy, but like most good things, should be enjoyed in moderation.
