Hiya, everyone! It’s that time of the week — What I Ate Wednesday. Except this time, I have a little spin for you. A couple weeks ago, the super cool peeps at Artisana Organic Foods sent me a bunch of their nut butters to try, so I’ll be showing you all of the delicious spreads I have been consuming over the past couple of weeks. As always, thank you to Jenn for putting this partay together!
As you can imagine, I was incredibly excited when this was the package that was delivered to me:
The first one that I decided to dive into was the coconut butter. I put it atop my morning oatmeal along with some blackberries:
I had been seeing coconut butter all over the blog-o-sphere. Healthy living bloggers seem to love this stuff for the taste and the healthy fats so I figured this stuff would rock. Well, it is totally incredible, but took me a couple of tries to get used to. I absolutely loved it over oatmeal because when it melted, the texture was kind of like frosting without being as sweet. If this stuff wasn’t so expensive I would purchase it all the time.
Next up? Pecan:
Now, this sentence may sound kind of funny, but I loved the Pecan Butter so much because it tasted like I was eating a bunch of crushed up pecans. This nut butter in particular was so delicious because I could tell how natural the ingredients were. It was delicious on its own and also when paired with a drizzle of honey!
Then I went for the Macadamia Nut Butter:
While I loved the crunch from the macadamia nuts, I wished there had been a bit more flavor. It was a little bland for me.
The Cashew Nut Butter was next:
This was another nut butter I really enjoyed! Cashews are my absolute fave, so I knew that I’d love this one, and I was right!
There are still a couple other nut butters (and coconut oil) that I have to try, but I wanted to share all of my thoughts that I have with you; and What I Ate Wednesday seemed like the appropriate time! What I really loved about the Artisana nut butters was how natural they tasted. With each nut butter I tried, I couldn’t believe how simple yet delicious each one was, reminding me that processed food and foods pumped with fillers just aren’t good for you. Thanks again, Artisana!
