When cravings arise, my go-to snack is celery sticks with a spread of almond butter on them (posted on my facebook page for everyone to see!). I have a few reasons for choosing almond butter compared to the more popular choice of peanut butter and it mostly involves the preference in my taste but the health benefits are incredible!
Almond butter has a higher vitamin E content and it also has a higher magnesium content, which helps dramatically with the nervous and muscle system in our bodies. The iron content in almond butter is also significantly higher than in peanut butter which is amazing for healthier oxygen transport.
