Pumpkin Seed Butter

weather: raining
outside: 10°C
mood: full
Pumpkin Seed Butter is an excellent alternative for those who are sensitive to molds commonly found in Peanut and Almond Butters. It is very tasty and loaded with omegas, rich in vitamin A, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. Processed for grinding at the low temperature of 110°F (43°C) so as to not destroy valuable nutrients. Herbicide and pesticide free. Pumpkin seed butter is a valuable addition to anyone's nutritional program.

Ingredients: Pumpkin Seeds and Celtic Sea Salt.

It looks like nuclear waste on your 12-grain bread, but it tastes great. Then again, I love the taste of pumpkin seeds to begin with. And just as with regular peanut butter, I need a cup of Jasmine tea to unglue my mouth with.

It's also pretty appropriate for scary-looking Hallowe'en food and because of the green tint, it's a bit better coordinated with the celery for Ants on a Log. =)

Molds commonly found in peanut butter? Crazy hippies...

Though it is tasty...

Why don't they just say "Tastes good and it's healthy"

Seeds do have fat, but from what I understand, it's healthy fat. As long as you're not filling up on seeds for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it's better for you to be having fats from seeds than say, a burger.

It's like when people say that avocados are super high in cholesterol, they don't say that it's high in HDL (the good cholesterol) and it helps reduce LDL (the bad cholesterol). So, I didn't need to purposely limit myself from having an avocado more often afterall =)

The rule of thumb that I go by: the closer it is to coming straight off a tree/vine/ground/etc., the less processing that is done to it, the better.

In that sense, vitamin supplements aren't great for you. Yes, an orange is very high in Vitamin C content, but there are literally hundreds of other vitamins and minerals that we haven't isolated, understood and categorized yet. It's very likely crucial that we get everything together as a system of nutrients or we're just not properly absorbing something.
