    Tips and Tricks

    • Use up leftover ham in this crunchy salad. Almonds can be replaced with walnuts, and ham can be replaced with turkey.

    • A great way to use up extra spinach is to throw it into a smoothie for breakfast – your body will thank you for the extra nutrition and you wont be able to taste the difference.

    • Older almonds are still fine to eat – roasting them in a low oven will crisp them up and you won’t even notice the difference.
