When I started being more careful about what I eat, one of my main issues was snacks in between meals. I have a sweet tooth and I knew chocolate bars and cookies in the middle of the afternoon were now out. I tried not to eat snacks at all but it didn't last long that I was back in my kitchen looking for something to eat.  I thought nuts would be a good idea. So, I bought pecans and started eating it. It was good but something was missing. I tried all kinds of mix spices and ways to cook them (let's just say some ended up in the garbage pretty quickly).  Then I tried this one: sweet and spicy.  WIN!!! 

I would describe it as mouthwatering, bold and totally addictive. Try it and you'll see what I mean ;). If you do, let us know what you think in the comment box below; we would love to know what you thought of it. You can also take a picture and share it with your friends. If you do, don’t forget to tag @vic.r_c on Instagram so we can see how it turned out. 

Thanks and Enjoy!
