Even though I have not been eating whole nuts I have added them to my diet by incorporating more nut butters. It has become much easier to control portions of nuts when in butter form… I had stop eating nuts for a while because they were very high in fats and fats are higher in calories per gram. This can pack the calories on pretty quickly since I am not one to ever use portion control when it comes to nuts.
You’re supposed to only eat a handful of nuts. Who can only just eat a handful without wanting more? I would say more like a bowl of nuts needless to say I have a nut problem. How many times can I say nuts in this post? I don’t know I am obsessed :). It’s easier to control nut butters because they are much more satisfying. They can also be added to bread, fruit, vegetables, and much more.
This week’s challenge will be what neat and creative things I can do with nut butters… Let the nut butter extravaganza begin… Starting with breakfast: Almond butter and Banana on toast…
