Nuts! What is in my almond butter?
Whitney Stuart RDN, Whole30 Certified Coach & ½ of the Dallas Duo.
I haven’t always been a nut butter lover. It took some time, trial and error, along with some lengthy reading of research for me to realize- fat isn’t making me fat. The real culprit? Okay, that’s for another day. But, I do know that I love my fat, how it keeps me full on busy days and maintains my blood sugar throughout the day. It stops that mid-day hunger feeling right in it’s snacky tracks!
My favorite sources? Nut butter. Specifically, wedged between celery ribs. I was originally the DIY grind kind; cheap, easy, crunchy and delicious. But, then I met Georgia Grinders. Now, my creaminess standard is set at a whole new level. The cashew butter? Oh MY!
Beware the new fancy fat trend, though! Have you seen it? Dressed up nut butters. Call me an elitist, but I my food to be minimal, few ingredients, and with nothing added. What's in my almond butter? Uh, almonds!
But now, I can get protein, probiotics, Vitamin B, berries, chocolate chips, glitter, and likely a soul mate; all stuffed into one jar. Take me back to the good old days! Before even Jif and Peter Pan were adding corn syrup to their whip. Just take me back to my daily Georgia Grind….
