Almond Butter Questions
Hi, I was looking for some healthy paleo treat and I think, that nut butter is the way. I have a choice between Almond and Cashew butter, but I'm not really sure which one I should choose. First, I'm looking at the taste.... (more)
sorry if this is a stupid question but...I've read alot about almond butter here and on other paleo threads...but what do you do with it?...it seems as though a lot of people just eat it right out of the jar...is that right?...how else can it be... (more)
I tried cutting back a while ago to 2 small tbsp. a day but I feel my body does better with more fat- I don't eat many carbs (maybe an acorn squash a day/ 1/2 banana on heavy WO days). How much AB do you normally go through per week? Thanks :) (more)
During my detox phase I really ate nuts like a maniac. Now my cravings are more controllable and at leats I imagine that they get fewer and fewer. Eating a huge and fatty breakfast and a huge lunch actually helps a lot even though it's not so... (more)
Ok. I admit. I was a PB fiend pre-paleo. I ate Crazy Richards which ahs ZERO sodium, all natural, nothin but peanuts. Now that I've been consuming almond butter instead, I've been having difficulties finding the right brand and the right kind.... (more)
I want to include almond butter for a tablespoon a day. I removed all nuts for the O6 content. I came across a comment in the paleosphere a whole ago about removing the clearer fat sitting atop almond butter containers. Any reason to believe... (more)
My wife's birthday is coming up in a few days & she wants a special treat. She loves Resse's Peanut Butter Cups, but since adopting the paleo lifestyle and eating habits, we have dropped these manufactured sweets from our diet and adventured... (more)
if you have a food processor, you can also make your own with coconut flakes! super cheap, though it takes a while and never seems to reach quite the same smooth consistency as the store-bought coconut butter.
After switching to Paleo for a month I'm trying to think of good sources of fat, and something to satify my sugar cravings. I've recently discovered Almond Butter- and love it! Within a 2 weeks I didn't miss peanut butter at all (I'm a runner so... (more)
I've been tweaking around eating semi paleo for about three months and pretty strictly primally (paleo with a bit of dairy and tempeh added once in a while) for about 6 weeks now. I was eating primarily vegetarian for 8 weeks or so getting the... (more)
I also used to binge on almond butter (with dates) but my body didn't seem to like it. Try removing it for a few weeks.
I just started the Paleo diet today. My question is, what brand of almond butter is best? I currently use Maranatha but noticed on the ingredient list it contains "cane sugar" and I know sugar is a no-no. Do all almond butters contain sugar? (more)
Although nuts are something I use only as an occasional treat, I really miss my peanut butter & would like a replacement. I just cannot get on the train of LOVING almond butter. I adore almonds, but almond butter tastes straight up gross. ... (more)
Thinking of buying a box of Justin Classic Almond Nut Butter to use as my fat source once a week or so for breakfast during IF. What do you all think of this product? Contains only almonds and palm fruit oil. What non-starchy vegetables would it... (more)
Sometimes I spill out the separated oil in almond butter to get rid of unnecessary Omega 6 fats. When doing so, do any of the nutrients (vitamin E, magnesium, etc.) get lost in this process? What nutrients are found in the oil, compared to the... (more)
I know they both have alot of O6, but I LOVE either of these as a treat with a banana. So which is better nutritionally?
I know people have mixed feelings about almond butter... lots of omega6s, ok in moderation if you're not trying to lose weight, etc. Assuming you want to eat some.... raw or roasted?
let me preface by explaining that I know this could be caused by over consumption, but I was just curious if there was any other cause. Today I fasted accidentally until 3pm. When I got back to my apartment I felt to weak to cook anything and... (more)
Have you looked at the ingredients? Are you sure it's pure almond butter? And how much is a half of jar? I mean if it is a small jar like I have, that would mean maybe 1 cup. It could also be because you ate too fast because you waited too long to... (more)
Alright, so could eating about 2 tbsp of Almond Butter daily hinder my final goal? I head once that it is used in "bulking" only and that it could severely slow my progress for eventual fat loss. Is this true?
As long as you are taking into account of it's calories and compensating by eating less of other foods, then no it should not hinder your fat loss. I eat a tablespoon of almond butter several days a week, and personally I think that if anything it... (more)
So overeating almonds is bad because it'll throw your Omega 3 to 6 ratio off. And this is bad because consumption of too much Omega 6 is correlated with inflammation; yet almonds are an anti-inflammatory food source? And does anyone have a... (more)
Experimenting with making my own homemade protein bars. I've gained 10 lbs of lean muscle in 30 days as a result, but I'm wondering if anybody else is eating this kind of volume, or has an opinion of Omega-6 load. Trying to offset this with about... (more)
