Justin's Almond Butter

I like the taste and all the nutritional goodness it brings.  This brand has 2 ingredients in it – look for a short list of ingredients.  Good rule of thumb is if you don’t know what it is or can’t pronounce it – don’t eat it.  Don’t be surprised that products that have a short ingredient list often cost more.  Why? –  because they are purer products.  Now keep in mind that there is fat in almond butter so go easy but don’t be fooled that you don’t need fat in your diet – you just need to choose good “fats.”

Here is a little information about almond butter.

Almond butter is made by crushing and smoothing almonds into a paste. Almonds are a highly nutritious food. By eating almonds or almond butter, you get vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium and phosphorus. Almonds are a good fiber source and also contain protein. Because of their high monounsaturated fat content, almonds are considered a healthy food choice. Almonds or almond butter provide healthy fat not typically found in foods high in saturated fats.

Use in smoothies, on toast, along side pancakes, celery sticks and apples.
