Nuts About Nuts - Nut Butter Recipes and Nutrition

Check out this cool infographic with awesome nut butter recipes you can make at home - which is way more cost effective.  It also includes the health benefits and nutrition information for each variety.  My recommendation would be to not use industrial seed oils such as canola due to their inflammation-causing properties, but rather replace it with coconut oil, MCT oil or better yet - Bulletproof XCT Oil, a higher concentrated form of MCT oil.  Personally, I also avoid peanuts and peanut butter since they are mostly sourced from GMO crops, generally contain high amounts of aflatoxins (mold) and lectins (anti-nutrient).

My favorite nut butter is almond butter made with XCT oil (or use MCT or coconut oil).  What's yours?

  1. Thank you for the very nice review of nuts and how they can contribute to our health. They are rich in fats, which the common wisdom today usually wants to ignore. Most people don't realize that our brains are heavily made up of fats and that 80% of the cholesterol in a healthy human is created by our own bodies, and is needed by our brains.

    For most, eating cholesterol is a very minor part of contributing to the amount of cholesterol in our bodies.

    Nuts provide a good balance of essential oils and fats.

    Keep up the great work, Veronica.
