I know, I know. Peanut butter is sooo out. What can I say, I still like it! It is a good source of protein and it is really versatile; it can be added to savory or sweet dishes. Of course if you prefer, almond or cashew butter are great alternatives. But ALWAYS check labels, especially when they advertise ‘no-stir’, these nut butters typically have added palm oil and other additives. Look for natural nut butters that ONLY contain nuts. If you can only find natural nut butter that has nuts and some salt that is also okay, but seriously, why do manufactures do that? It drives me crazy, all I want is some plain, ground up nuts! Is that so hard?! Okay, sorry, done ranting.
A really easy breakfast is nut butter spread on toast (again check the bread label to avoid added sugar and oils). But it can get a little boring. An easy way to add some variety to your morning PB toast is to just add some berries on top. It really does change it up. You can add sliced strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries or a combination of all three. Add some chia seeds and breakfast is done! It is so simple I feel a little ridiculous adding it as a recipe. But here you go!
