Today was the first time I’ve ever tried Almond Butter. I’ve had it in my pantry for almost two years and was too scared to try it. It just didn’t sound good to me, but I purchased it because I read about it everywhere and how much healthier it is for you.
I was reading my Oxygen magazine (January 2009 issue….why in the world am I getting an issue for January when it’s only November is beyond me). As I’m reading, I’m hungry, but yet, it’s not time for lunch and I don’t want to eat anything too big and eating chips or chocolate seemed to be a not-so-great option to eat while I’m reading an Oxygen magazine issue.
One quick tip for snacking was to have a piece of toast with almond butter on it. I figured this was as good a time as any to give that almond butter a try. I pull it out of the pantry to find that it expired in July of 2008 (so I’m only 4 months late and it’s never been opened, so I figure it’s still fine for at least one try). I did try it and love it! I think I even like it more than peanut butter (and I’m a huge fan of peanut butter). It has such a great flavor! I now have it on my grocery list of things to get the next time I’m grocery shopping (getting one that’s not expired and hopefully using it this time).
