Health Benefits

This all-natural recipe features fruit, whole grains and almonds.  We know almonds are “nuterrific” because they are high in fiber, the antioxidant Vitamin E and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat that won’t raise your cholesterol.
This breakfast is incredibly filling and full of natural energy – Now all you have to do is “bring it”!
Almond Butter and Berry Smoothie
This morning I woke up craving a refreshing and filling smoothie. But, oh no! Out of protein powder… What is a healthy foodie to do?! My protein powder is what gives my smoothies their thick texture so I had to think quick for a substitution… So, I’m thinking thick and then it comes to me: almond butter and oats! The result was something entirely natural and much more delicious! I may be obsessed with this new creation (even though I will warn you that it sounds… different). Here we go…
