Even though I’m from Virginia, I’ve never been much of a peanut butter fan. I’m surprised they haven’t kicked me out of the state by now for not liking peanuts. Now almond butter is a different situation entirely. It’s great in smoothies and as a spread for celery sticks and apple slices.
If you haven’t tried almond butter, now is your chance to get a jar of Justin’s Classic Almond Butter FREE from Thrive Market. Lots of nut butters have added sugar or high fructose corn syrup which isn’t great for the old carb count. Justin’s is full of protein and healthy fats – one serving has only 6g carbs – and it’s naturally gluten-free, vegan, and Paleo-friendly. I’m definitely a fan of this product.
Almond butter is also a great substitute for peanut butter if you have a peanut allergy.
Full disclosure: I became an affiliate with Thrive Market because I love their service so much. I buy most of my non-perishables from them now because their prices are so much better than I can get locally. I learned about Thrive from one of Dr. Mark Hyman’s newsletters after I completed his 10 Day Detox. I highly recommend you give them a try. Your support will also help me keep this website running.
