  • How can you resist Almond Butter and nut butters?

    Ok, after a good sizeable lunch I ate 4 pieces of dark chocolate, 1 tablespoon of Cashew Butter, 1 tablespoon of Almond Butter with Flaxseeds and more than half a jar of Maranatha Almond Butter (354g).

    Assuming I already heard the "don't buy them" thing, how the hell do I resist them?

    I just mix them into some almond flour for yummy, yummy little bite sized goodies.

      I don't know. I don't like the flavor of almond butter, so it's easy for me. Almonds is a different story, though.

              Out of sight, out of mind. I stick things like nut butters and chocolate in the back of the pantry on a low shelf, so they don't leap out at me when I open the door.

                I feel kind of bad for pigging out... but I guess I need to learn from the experience instead of feeling bad. I need to gain weight after all, so it's paradoxical I'm feeling this way... maybe I'm feeling this way because I felt like "I lost". It was a number of nut butters I ate, and one of them I ate half a jar.

                  Maybe visualizing all the rancid fats you're eating will gross you out. As soon as you break the integrity of the nut, things start going south. A commercial product that sits on the shelf who knows how long is sort of disgusting if you think about it too much.

                    I could never learn and had to do the out of the house. Sometimes there's no new fun solution.

                      Whatever you do, don't buy the Macadamia/Cashew butter blend. It is too addictive!

                          None of the nut/seed butters do it for me the way peanut butter did. I've had the same jar of almond butter for nearly eight months sitting in my fridge. I seem to have lost my taste for nuts. Maybe it's a hot weather thing. All I want is cucumbers and fruit lately.

                            I too have lost my taste for nuts *harhar*
                            Since I've been primal, I have no taste for almonds, cashews or any of my old regulars - not even my beloved pistachios. Peanut butter tastes too legume-ish now. It's really got that bitter aftertaste . . . bummer at first.
                            They all sit heavy on my stomach - I've noticed that coconut butter and chocolate do that too. A bit like eating hot cement, but with much better flavor.

                              Only had peanut butter...

                              But as your heard before, just don't buy them I find it really hard to stay away from things if they're in the house.
