Health Benefits of Almond Butter

Health Benefits of Almond Butter

Almond butter is an ideal source of protein which is crucial for tissue repair and regeneration – and combined with their other nutrients, almonds and almond butter can help to reduce the bad cholesterol in the blood and raise the good cholesterol!

Almond butters can also help to feed the good bacteria in your gut and promote gut health.

Another reason to include almond butter in your diet is that the antioxidants in the almonds are known to decrease rises in blood sugar levels after a meal.

It isn’t inflammatory like peanut butter and that is fabulous news for those of us who love our spreads!

Also so good on a sliced organic apple or banana!

Does anyone else use almond butter?

One month into the New Year

One month into the New Year

Weighing your food.

Counting every last morsel that goes in your mouth.

Waking up exhausted.

Drinking a pot of coffee to make it through your day.

Working out 7 days a week.

Saying NO when all you want to do is say yes.

Using the term “cheat” day.

Prepping and eating the same meal all week long.

If these things bring you JOY and RESULTS, then by all means keep doing what you are doing. The thing is, I often think many of us believe that you have to do these things to reach your health and wellness goals. It’s simply not the case.

I am also a big believer that we were designed to seek JOY. So if what you are doing right now isn’t SIMULTANEOUSLY bringing you joy + results, at some point you are going to “fall off that wagon” and dive head first into the first thing that will. That’s when the YO-YO begins.

If you are tired of living a life that lacks joy simply because you think that’s the only way to feel good in your body again, you deserve to learn a healthy lifestyle!!

You are one month in now to 2022. Last month at this time you probably had set some health goals for yourself, if you don’t feel like you are on track, I’m here.

Let’s chat!



Let’s talk Selenium



Brazil nuts are something I recently added into my diet. I eat two every morning. It is one of the most reliable sources of selenium.

Selenium is a powerful antioxidant and is one of the essential minerals for our health and immunity.

A powerful mineral that is essential for the proper functioning of your body. It plays a critical role in metabolism and thyroid function and helps protect your body from damage caused by oxidative stress.

Selenium protects our thyroid and immune system, and supplementing with it (at a therapeutic dosage) has been found to reduce thyroid antibodies, reduce thyroid symptoms, and improve overall well-being.

Sources of Selenium;
•Oysters – 238% of the RDA in 85g
•Brazil nuts – 174% of the RDA in one nut alone
•Halibut – 171% of the RDA in 160g
•Eggs – 56% of the RDA in 100g
•Sardines – 46% of the RDA in 50g
•Sunflower seeds – 27% of the RDA
•Chicken breast – 12% of the RDA

Deficiency Symptoms may look like:
