Say Goodbye To Peter Pan!
Move over Peter Pan...there's something ALOT healthier these days. The Weekly Beet brings you Almond Butter, the latest craze among healthy snack eaters.
The creme de la creme of Almond Butter comes from Glaser Organics, the raw food company we reported on last week. We just had to share this company with you again because their Almond Butter is absolutely unBEETable! We literally can not stop eating the stuff. It is the creamiest, most delicious snack EVER!! Glaser's Almond Butter is made from 100% raw, organic almonds. It puts Jif and Peter Pan to shame. Spread it on crackers (no hydrogenated oil please), bananas, or just eat it by the spoonful like you did when you were a kid. Why not go all out and have an AB & J (almond butter and jelly) sandwich???
Glaser's price isn't exactly cheap, but we can honestly say it's the best money we have ever spent. We're talking even better than on our fabulous, red Uggs!! If you haven't gotten the new lilac or red Uggs, you must buy! Though, we say get your Almond Butter first. It will be alot easier to find than those highly sought after Uggs.
So, here's the scoop on the health benefits of Almonds:
- Lowers risk of heart disease due to high amounts of Vitamin E and the LDL lowering effect of being a monounsaturated fats
- Contains high levels of magnesium which calms the body and mind
- Aids in weight loss
- Increases energy thanks to high levels of Biotin (a
- Promotes colon health

You can also find Almond Butter in any health food store. Most health food stores make it right there in the store with their almond crushing machines. Those are definitely yummy, but a little more thick and crunchy. If you're not a fan of the Almond Butter, you can find natural Peanut Butter as well!
Just a little FYI...Jif and Peter Pan add lots of extra oils that do nothing but add pounds and clog arteries. Do yourself a healthy favor and go for the all-natural stuff. You'll be happy that you did.
Don't miss a Beet. Stay tuned for next week.
