Almond Butter to the Rescue!

We all have those hurried mornings where we have no time to prepare breakfast at the house, and instead scramble to grab purses, wallets, jackets, or even just ourselves to get inside our cars to make our way to work. What is one thing I suggest not forgetting during this frenetic time? Almond Butter, and some whole grain English muffins or bread. If you don’t have time to quickly slap on some almond butter on your toast prior to engaging in the departure madness, then try and prepare it the night before!

Breakfast, or at least, a morning snack is critical to feeling okay for the rest of your day, particularly for yours truly (Without some kind of food in the morning, I quickly will turn kinda psycho). Almond butter is a spread that for me, sticks to me longer than peanut butter, and when spread on top of a lightly toasted bagel, muffin or bread slice is soo satisfying!

Almond butter is a better alternative to peanut butter because almond butter contains more calcium, protein, and has not been proven to rise your “good” cholesterol, whereas peanut butter has. Almond butter also has more B vitamins than it’s peanut rival.

So grab a banana, almond butter and toast on your way out the door and be a much happier doctor, writer, model, office warrior, or whatever awesome thing it is that you do during your day!

About govegetarianista86

After transitioning to a meatless diet two years ago, Lauren and I had no choice but to learn lots of great vegetarian recipes---and fast---after all, we always loved great food. The reason for our decision to omit meat and most dairy products from our lives was quite simple. A vegetarian diet is healthier, kinder, and ironically much cheaper than one with meat. We created this website to show that being a vegetarian is one of the easiest and most rewarding lifestyles to partake in, and hope that both vegetarians and aspiring vegetarians alike will visit Go-Vegetarianista habitually. :) About the authors: Nadya Rousseau is an actor/writer/producer residing in Beverly Hills, CA. She moved to Los Angeles almost five years ago at the age of nineteen to pursue her career and to escape the boredom of her small town. As maintaining a svelte figure is often pivotal in the entertainment industry, she finds she has no trouble staying slim and healthy as a vegetarian. In addition to loving good food and helping others, she enjoys engaging in sarcastic banter--keep an eye out for her frequent sardonic jokes--you'll surely be amused!! Lauren Rheims, is a native of Pomona, CA, and now resides in Beverly Hills, CA. She is a fashion and nature photographer, and of course loves shooting pictures of super yummy food! Lauren at first was apprehensive about becoming vegetarian, being of Creole descent, enjoying delicious seafood and meat, was more or less second nature. However after she discovered just how easy it was to enjoy the same delectable meals sans meat, she was thrilled! Lauren is excited to show everyone the simplicity and allure of vegetarian fare--and just how fun it can be!
