Hello, my favorite keto lovers. I don’t know about you, but I am loving this week so far. The sun is out, the European temperatures are rising, and all almond butter at the Ekoplaza are 50% off. Hence, I decided I was going to treat myself and stack up on some good ol’ almond-flavored everythings…
Imagine charcuterie-style cold cuts, aged Italian sheep cheese, roasted nuts, Abbot Kinney’s coconut yogurt and … (more than my fair share of) almond butter and you get a picture of my food choices of the past week. Though naturally delicious and nutritiously rich, I figured my walks to the kitchen cabinet, (and subsequent scoops full of almond butter) were getting a bit out of hand, and I needed to lose the nut butter asap.
But what was I going to do with them? It would be a waste to throw them away. Nevertheless, if they were waiting for me up in the kitchen cabinet, who was I to disappoint? In deciding I was going to neither indulge nor disappoint, I spiced the nut butters up in a way that would allow me to freeze the shit out of them (and perhaps teach myself a lesson in self-control). Hence, I created something that I myself was a bit flabbergasted by, and I hope will inspire generations of Keto-lovers to come.
