5 Reasons Why We LOVE NUT BUTTER.

Wellness > Smart Girls

By: Candice Kumai

When shopping for nut butters, be sure to go for the au naturel stuff, always. The ingredients should read: Dry roasted nuts and not much more. Sugar, sweeteners and oils can be added to nut butters, so be on the lookout for those necessary extras! All you need is love babes! I mean nuts, you know, what I mean…

Go have an amazing one, and yes, I am eating this straight from the jar, because sometimes, you just gotta. xxx Candice

1- Nut butters are full of healthy fats, and healthy fats are good for heart health and almond butter is an even better choice, as almonds are full of biotin for beautiful, healthy, hair

2- Nut butters are packed with plant protein, so next time you’re blending up a post-workout smoothie, opt to blend with 2 tablespoons of your fave peanut butter, sunbutter, almond butter, or cashew butter.

3-  Nut butters go both ways. I mean… they bake and cook perfectly in sweet and in savory foods. Like scoop some in your morning quinoa porridge os use it to bind your homemade granola bars… or…add it to your Thai peanut sauce or spicy soba noodle sauce.

4- Nut butters are a really simple way to get vitamin E, which is needed for: Beautiful eyes, skin and an immunity boost! Focus on organic and natural, unsweetened almond butter and peanut butter.

5- Well, it tastes so damn good. Nut butters are perfect for satiation: that means staying satisfied. So if you’re on the go, grab and scoop to go, throw some in your am smoothie, top off your oats with a scoop or dip your apple slices in the stuff. And save some later to make peanut butter protein ballz.
