I was a latch-key kid. My mom worked until 5 pm each day, so my brothers and I came home to an empty house. And when you’ve got older brothers, there’s no one to baby you or provide for your needs – at least not my brothers. It was survival when it came to scrounging for snacks out of the pantry.
As a Kindergartner, I would grab the peanut butter jar and a spoon and plop down infront of the TV and eat scoop after scoop. I was a skinny, active little girl and this was probably my largest caloric meal of the day.
When I learned that peanuts were not good for me this past month, I began to look at almonds more seriously. In a short time, almond butter has become a staple in our home. But for now, my two favorites have been the NaturAlmond brand (I particularly like the honey roasted) and I am in love with Kalot’s Fruit and Almond Butter with blueberries, cinnamon and walnuts – all of which are on my beneficial list! Whoop whoop!
Next step is to make my own Fruit and Almond Butter in hopes of saving some dinero.
