Is it ok to eat a small amount of almond butter once a day? Example: fold-over almond butter sandwith w/fruit spread

Hey Ash,

Yes, and wash it down with some Naked Juice! Almond butter should be just fine. The Zone classifies 1/2 tsp. as 1 block. That doesn't sound like too much I know. I used to put that much per slice of apple.

I just bought some of this stuff last night. It's good and I ate too much of it.

Try making your own, it tastes so good. But personally, I'm a peanut butter sandwhich guy, and if I had to go with 1 tsp per block, I'd probably break down and cry.

Costco has some for pretty cheap.

Good stuff, especially if you are on the Athlete's Zone (extra 'good' fat).

I just got a jar of Almond butter, paid 6.99 for it. Is that average? I couldn't find it anywhere.
I grew up eating sugar filled JIF, heck I love sugar, I'm addicted to the white stuff.
I hope the Almond butter will take its place...

Half a jar to a jar a day works for me.

Trader Joe's (for those lucky enough to have one near you) has a pretty good Almond Butter. I think it's right under $5 per jar.

The cashew/macadamia nut butter you can get there is good too. I don't have a Zone book near me, but is Cash/Mac butter zone friendly? Any reason to steer clear of it?
