Favourite Nut Butters!

What is your favourite nut butter? How healthy are they?

These days, picking out a nut butter can be a hard task, due to so many options on the shelves. Are you really sure if you’re getting the right one—or if it’s actually doing everything the jar claims.

Over the last few years I have tried out many peanut / almond / cashew butter to go with my shakes / oats on a morning. Most nut butters have a good amount of fibre and heart-healthy fats, while others are too calorie-dense and can be high in sugars.

My Favourite Peanut Butter:

Whole Earth Foods Organic Peanut Butter

Delicious peanut butter made with organically-grown peanuts and no added sugar!

Whole Earth Foods make their peanut butters (and other goodies) with wholesome, natural ingredients and no added nasties – just real, down-to-earth goodness. After all, why mess about with something that’s so good just as it is?

This cashew butter gets it’s extra flavour kick with the help of natural flower honey and warming cinnamon. The perfect blend of sweet and spicy.

I would say that all nut butters can be healthy, in very different ways.

Don’t go over a couple of tablespoons per day, as you can definitely have too much of a good thing. The healthfulness of nut butters can be enjoyed in small doses, and overdoing it may counteract this healthfulness – which no one wants!

 

NUTRITION TIP: Rotate your nut butters!

Rotating your nut and seed butters to get different health benefits. Keep your cupboards stocked up with two or three at a time, and enjoy them in different ways!
