Favourite Food: Almond Butter

For a great alternative to peanut butter, try almond butter. I'm loving spreading this over toasted bread at the moment, for a healthy and filling snack that tastes great too.

Almonds are a super-food and are one of the most nutritious of all nuts. Almonds are packed with Vitamin E and also provide you with calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Evidence suggests that almonds can help fight cancer and contribute toward having a healthy and strong heart.

But do remember, all nuts are high in calories so if you are watching your weight spread the almond butter thinly :-)
