My latest favorite food product would have to be Justin’s Nut Butter. Because almond butter is so much healthier than peanut butter, I tend to buy almond, rather than peanut butter. Justin’s comes in jars and little 2 Tbsp packs–I choose the packs for the convenience. I just cut up an apple, throw a pack of chocolate almond butter in the bag, and I’ve got a delicious snack for during work or anywhere on the go. Since I’m a chocolate lover, the chocolate almond butter is my favorite. It’s so rich and delicious, I actually like to have a spoonful as a dessert replacement (oops!). But if you’re not into almond butter, he also makes classic, chocolate and honey peanut butter. For almond butter, there’s chocolate, maple, honey and classic.
Other ideas for what to do with Justin’s? Spread it on a piece of bread, add sliced banana, and you’ve got a healthier alternative to a Nutella sandwich. For me, I like to cut up fruit, whether it be bananas or apples, and spread the nut butter on. You can also add them to healthy milkshakes or even bake with it. Whatever you choose to do with it, it’s a great product!
On top of Justin’s overall yummy factor, they stick to their mission of being green and making the smallest carbon footprint they can. They use recycled paper for cardboard, their headquarters is solar powered, the products themselves are sourced locally and sustainably and they’re working towards a compostable squeeze pack!
Something else I learned–Justin’s makes peanut butter cups! Reese’s fans REJOICE! I haven’t seen them with my own eyes yet, but I will definitely be on the lookout.
Hope you enjoyed this month’s Featured Foodie product!
