almond butter


One of our favorite foods is nut butters.  Although there are many people with nut allergies or sensitivities, there are many options available that even include nut butter alternatives to satisfy everyone’s nutty tastes!



Whether you prefer peanut, almond, cashew or macadamia, it is important to look at the ingredients of your nut butter.  We recommend sticking to the rule of keeping it simple…the fewer the ingredients the better.  Peanut butter should have…you guessed it…peanuts!  And maybe some added salt.  But that is all.  Have you ever looked at the ingredients on a jar of Skippy peanut butter?  Roasted peanuts (good), sugar, hydrogenated vegetable oil, salt.  Why do you need to put extra sugar and hydrogenated vegetable oil in your body?  You don’t!  Read labels and be mindful of what you are choosing!  This all-natural, organic peanut butter is one of our faves!



We can easily upgrade nut butters from the classic PB & J!  Nut butter can have so many uses!  Some of our favorites:




Nut butter can be the perfect snack.  If you have your jar and a spoon you are set.  Or when you are on the go, grab your favorite nut butter pouch.  If you follow a keto lifestyle, “fat bombs” are best when made with nut butters, especially macadamia nut butter which has a preferable fat to carb ratio for Keto.  One note regarding snacking and nut butters. Be mindful of the quantity you are eating.  A little goes a long way and too much is too much!  A typical serving of 2 Tbsp is 200 calories and you can easily over-consume, thus taking in more calories than you need, if you are not mindful.


Enjoy all the options that nut butters provide!  There are many high-quality, great tasting options available and you can get creative with how you use them.  Comment below and let us know your favorite nut butter and how you like to eat it!
