Like most people, I want to make the better choice when possible. I eat a lot of almond butter. Should I make my own, probably. Have I? No. So I buy mine. I was thinking that all almond butters were created equal. But it seems to me that some are more equal than others. A lot of the store bought almond butters actually contain dry-roasted almonds (just look at the label). The commercial roasting of almonds actually breaks down the good fat and produces free radicals. Free radicals: Bad. Then while shopping at Superstore, I found a 'raw' version. I thought, I'll give this a try. I know it'll be better for me but what about the taste? HOLY COW!! It's out of this world. Seriously, it's so good that when my friend Pow came over last night, I gave her a spoonful (just to make sure I wasn't the only one loving the stuff) and needless to say, I had to take the jar away from her. She claims it's the best nut butter she's ever had too. So there you go folks. Give it a try. Sooooo worth it.
