Nut butter. It's one of those phrases I just love to say, mostly because it tends to bring about a sense of discomfort in some when repeated over and over, especially when paired with "uggghhhhh I LOVE nut butter!" (and don't even get me started on "nut milk" and "nut cheese").
I love nut butter. Let's be honest - you probably do, too. For as long as I can remember, I've been scooping spoonfuls of this creamy diet-staple on a daily basis. Whether slathered between two slices of bread in one of Mom's PB & J sandwiches with homemade strawberry jam, eaten straight out of the jar as an afternoon snack, drizzled (or dumped) atop a breakfast smoothie bowl, or even snuck into cookie dough for extra rich flavor, nut butters...
... they make me happy when skies are gray (skies are currently very gray). They make me happy when skies are blue, too, though. Heck, the sky could even be a fiery orange or deep purple and, as long as I've got a jar of nut butter in hand, all is well to me.
My latest obsession: NuttZo Nut Butters.
What is it?
Sorry - excuse my sassiness. NuttZo is a redefined version of nut butters. It's not just almonds or peanuts. NuttZo has tapped the shoulder of my inner forgetful self and added in nuts and seeds with all the nutrients my body needs most: chia seeds, flax seeds, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, hazelnuts, and more.
Um, thank youuuuuuuuu. #amen
My opinion: (3 versions)
1) One of the most unique, delicious nut butters I've ever had.
2) The first I'll reach for in the nut butter aisle at the grocery store (this is saying A LOT).
3) Absolutely worth every penny (I'll explain more below).
Because, if you're anything like me (busy, on-the-go, health-minded, nut-butter-loving), NuttZo speaks directly to you by combining all those essential, otherwise hard-to-find nutrients into a simple, delicious, complete-protein nut butter - peanut, almond, or chocolate! On their own, nuts and seeds are incomplete proteins, but when combined (whether in one meal or within a short period of time), become complete proteins for our bodies to more easily access and utilize.
Need another reason to buy? Each purchase supports Project Left Behind - a non-profit that aims to "promote education, improved nutrition, and living conditions for orphans and neglected children around the world." Need I say more?
Where to buy?
