Healthy Peanut ButterNut butters make a tasty alternative to eating nuts and provide a great addition to spreads, sauces and smoothies.  Here are the two most preferred nut butters:

Peanut butter is higher in protein, fiber, niacin and folate and slightly higher in saturated fats.

Almond butter is higher in calcium and slightly lower in saturated fats.

Call to Action:

Buy only healthy nut butters, which should contain only nuts.  Be careful not to buy peanut butter with hydrogenated oils, added sugar, or high fructose corn syrup.

Also, roasting adds fat and destroys some of the nutrients, so go raw!

To your wellness,
