Whether sprinkling slivered almonds on steamed veggies, spreading almond butter on breakfast toast or scooping up crunchy cashews when a snack attack hits, it’s easy to go nuts for nuts! No matter how you enjoy them, just a small serving instantly ups your daily intake of fiber, protein and healthy fats. But be sure to watch for this ingredient on labels, or you may be setting yourself back when it comes to benefits.

Almond butter is tempting on toast or crackers, but don’t stop at spreading when it comes to splurging on this creamy, nutty treat. Scoop some into your blender along with a can of pumpkin, a splash of coconut milk and a couple of spices for a quick, tasty pudding that doubles as dessert or a healthy snack.
If you’ve got some extra brown rice leftover from last night’s stir-fry dinner, today’s breakfast is going to be a breeze! Stir in a scoop of almond butter, some applesauce, a pinch of cinnamon and a few other simple ingredients for a delightful, belly-warming bowl of porridge. Top with fresh berries for added antioxidants and sweetness.
Put down the phone. Guilt-free Chinese takeout is being made in-house tonight. You’ll enjoy the familiar flavors of soy, sesame and onion. But instead of the usual peanut sauce, spaghetti-style noodles are tossed with almond butter for a lighter, creamier taste. With a few extra veggies tossed in and a pair of chopsticks, you’ve got dinner in the bag…er, bowl.
Almond butter is the new peanut butter. That’s a strong statement coming from a lifelong peanut butter fan, but hear me out on this one:
It’s creamy, it’s nutty and it’s the perfect nutritious spread for fruit, bread, pretzels and more.
Who says there isn’t room in the Paleoista Lifestyle for a treat every now and then? These decadent holiday truffles are perfect for this special time of year and make a lovely parting gift to hand out to guests at the end of a Paleo feast.
Trick…or treat? This tasty frozen dessert is a little of both! Creamy, cold and rich, it’s got all the appeal of soft-serve ice cream. But instead of dairy, coconut milk and almond butter are blended with pumpkin for a healthier chilled “cream” confection.
