Kick off your morning with this nutrient-packed homemade almond butter:
Begin by throwing raw organic almonds into the Nutribullet. It will first turn into a powder, but if you continue to blend it will eventually become a creamy texture. This nut butter is not only super tasty but also highly nutritious.
Spread this nutrient-rich butter onto your choice of toasted bread. My favourite choice is Food For Life’s Rice Almond Bread because it’s gluten-free and vegan. Not to mention, it pairs really well with this spread.
Sprinkle some cinnamon for flavour. The added bonus of this medicinal spice is to regulate our blood sugar and act as an anti-inflammotory all at the same time.
Toss some black ground organic chia seeds into the mix for some added protein, fibre, antioxidants, and omega-3s.
An option is to add local organic raw honey for its anti-bacterial properties, allergy relief, and simply a great taste.
What could be better than that?
If you don’t have a blender that will perform this action, then you can make your own freshly ground almond butter at Wholefoods. If you don’t have a WF grocery store near you, I recommend MaraNatha’s no stir creamy almond butter (no hydrogenated oils) at your local food store because it’s more widely available and also has the same great taste.
Almonds butter is high in monounsaturated fats (the good fat), calcium, potassium, iron, protein, fibre, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin E, and more.
