Almond Butter

Don't forget that there are many nut butters on the market other than standard peanut butter. A recommended serving of almond butter, one tablespoon, has 101 calories and 9.5 grams of total fat with 91% of that fat being healthy monounsaturated fat. Almonds are beneficial to your health because they help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Try subbing almond butter on a sandwich, apple, or piece of celery, or use it in sauces for a rich, nutty flavor.
