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!

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!!
