Eat it with oats or toast — there’s more to nut butters than peanut butter.
There’s no reason to diss peanut butter like that as it contains the highest amount of protein, and so, it is the most trending nut butter among fitness freaks. However, if you’re looking to get fitter and healthier, getting hooked on just one nut butter is not enough. Try adding almond butter ( the healthiest), walnut butter (rich in omega-3 fatty acids), cashew butter (vegan dessert lovers), macadamia nut (low-carb), pecan butter (rich in manganese), hazelnut butter (great alternative to peanut allergies), and more to your diet. And since our favourite stores around the city might be inaccessible due to the lockdown, here’s a list of online stores that are selling creamy and crunchy, rich in texture, nut butters.
