Hi everybody

I'm the type that just loves to eat almond butter with a spoon

I will usually will have 2-3 spoonfulls at a time 'cause it's so delicious !!!

Good stuff, I agree.  Try mixing it  1/2 and 1/2 with chopped walnuts.  It greatly improves the fatty acid balance.  Almonds are high in omega 6 and walnuts have omega 3, which we really need more of.

Hmm ... not really, however; I did abuse during the holidays
and gained a few pounds  
That's what too many cakes and cookies will do to u


I was just worried that eating too much almond butter on almost a daily basis might
be bad for the digestive track since it's a big blob of fat so to speak ... and wondered
if this could clog up my digestive track ...

Thanks

Actually, eating fats causes the release of bile from gallbladder/liver and the bile helps lubricate the intestines, which helps prevent constipation. So no, the fat shouldn't clog up your digestive track.

I thank-u so much  MoDon

I was just worried that eating 2-3 tablespoons of fat all at once might be too much for the liver to process since I do it almost on a daily basis ...

I appreciate ur knowledge

I didn't say to over do it.

The recommended serving size is 1-2 tablespoons 4-7 times a week for type B secretors. However, I think a lot of us tend to over eat nuts/nutbutter. Do be careful about your omega 6 vs omega 3 EFA intake.

a few nuts before bed might be an effective sleeping aid, for you!!

Yes, I agree!  That's why my light evening meal, a couple of hours before bed is toasted rice cakes with walnut/almond butter.  It makes me so relaxed and sleep well.  And I don't eat grain carbs at any other time of the day, for that reason also.

Mmmmm...good stuff.  

It's usually 2 spoonfuls for me, along with three eggs, as my last meal before bed time.

And no, NOT mixed together.    Between the two, I have a fair amount of protein, carbs, and calories, to carry me through the night while I'm sleeping.

And what is wrong with mixing them together!!!!

I like to put a bit in smoothies. Yummy.

It`s also a perfect peanut substitute when I make satay sauce, and the like.

I bought a little $5 hand-crank nut grinder, and use it to grind walnuts with.  I mix my chopped walnuts into the almond butter, up to 1/2 and 1/2 if the almond butter is thin enough to take the extra nuts without being too dry.  Basically, I put in as many chopped walnuts as I can, and still have it soft enough to spread.  The more the better, since walnuts are better for us than almonds.

Drea,
It looks sort of like this, but mine has a white plastic top, and the nuts fall into a clear glass jar at the bottom.  It's hand cranked, and if you crank it one direction, the nuts are chopped fine; if you turn the handle in the other direction, the nuts are chopped coarse.  I use it several times a week.

Most of the grocery stores carry the one I have at around $5.

Oh, here is the exact one that I have:

These simple things stand the test of time, like a hand-held "egg beater".  Or a whisk,  or . . . a Broom!
