Nut butters can be quite healthy IN MODERATION, and provide you with protein to help you through till the next meal. We recommend almond butter as almonds are the healthier of the nuts. The key when choosing any nut butter, is to look at the ingredients. A lot of nut butters include unnecessary additives. The ingredients should list only one thing- the nut! So if you’re looking for almond butter, for instance, the ingredients should only have roasted almonds.
