I like nut butters as an easy source of protein to dip things into or to put in oatmeal, shakes etc. It's easy to have too much though. And I only eat the natural kind never the stuff mixed with extra oil or sugar

Petrifies me. Especially because every damn time I try to have peanut butter in the house, I end up binging on it.

Even though I try to avoid them myself, I think eating nuts in their whole, raw, unprocessed form is the best. Soaking them beforehand is even better (it gets rid of phytic acid and it makes nutrients more available).

You're absolutely right. But from an ED perspective it also makes the calories more available for your body to adsorb. wtf right?!? And its been shown that you absorb more calories from nut butter than an equivalent amount of whole nuts. That being said I am all about nut butter so I choose to ignore that

I love peanut butter (Laura Scudder is my favorite and only brand I get). Actually, I only eat 1TBSP a day, and it's only 100 cals, so not terrible.

Too high calorie and too high carb. Sometimes there's added sugar.

If it weren't for those things, yes.

I will however, eat nuts.

Ugh I make no sense lol 😂

I mean honestly there's so many processed nut butters with all sorts of hydrogenated oils and processed sugars added, it's sickening  :(

But I think that if you stick to making your own/buying the right kind it's a great source of energy for your diet.

oooh i wish i could but I saw it on a documentary. Gah I wish I could remember which one now but I've watched a bunch in the last month. But honestly I would take the info "with a grain of salt". For every scientific study proving something is healthy there is another one proving it is unhealthy lol

 

Edit: I found an article that I remember reading that got me started into looking into it...
http://joshmitteldor...from-your-food/

 

"Nuts and seeds are often rich in fat, so they register as high-calorie foods.  But they are harder to digest, and the body gets less from them.  Seeds that are unchewed go right through us.  In fact, many plants use animals to help disperse their seeds, and evolution has designed the seeds to survive digestion.  Most nuts are partially chewed, and some small pieces pass through undigested.  There is a big difference in available energy from eating peanuts and peanut butter, though the labels will list the identical calorie content."

Love it, but too calorie dense for when I'm in losing mode... but if I'm cool with my weight and just wanna be healthy I use almond butter in oatmeal and a chocolate seedy spread as a dessert kinda thing. But in general it freaks me out a bit. Only get the natural ones.

I just found one yesterday that also had a load of seeds (can't remember which seeds) mixed in. It also had no added sugar - and no added anything else, according to the label. I think when it's like that it's fine (in small doses!) but it was sat there right next to sugar and chemical ridden peanut butters and chocolate spreads, so you just gotta check the label.
