“Peanut, peanut butter….JELLY!”  See Soph and Liv enjoying their sandwiches HERE! 

There is Nut’n better then a PB & J!  For those of you who have peanut allergies in the family, you will be happy to know that there are options in this “sticky situation!”

Almond Butter:

  • Great source of omega 6 and an even better source of omega 3!
  • Most nutrient dense nut!  Packed with iron, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium and vitamin E!
  • Great source of fat and protein for your growing babe!

Pecan Butter:

  • Pecans are amazing, in a nut shell 😉
  • Packed with vitamins A, B and E.
  • Great source of potassium and fiber to keep that system in check!

Cashew Butter:

  • Rich in iron, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc and copper.
  • May help lower triglyceride levels.

Pumpkin Butter:

  • Packs more of a protein punch than peanut butter!
  • Contains beta-carotene – boost that immune system!
  • Great source of fiber and potassium.

These are my top 4 favorites!  More better butter options are:

  • Tahini
  • Sunflower
  • Walnut
  • Pistachio
  • Macadamia Nut
  • Hazelnut
  • Coconut
