Lawd knows I like good food. I worked in restaurants for years, get to eat at amazing places, have best friends that are chefs and cookbook writers…but I’m not much of a cook. I mean I can definitely throw down when need be, but I just don’t really LIKE cooking. I’m lazy as hell. If I do cook, I want it to be easy and fast. Or I just snack a lot. Therefore, today, I introduce my kind of food blog post- Easy Eats. First up is my main go-to: a spoon and a jar of almond butter. This ain’t called Easy Eats for nothin’ people!
I always add some sort of topping to my AB spoon and it’s usually Compartes dark chocolate. I also love a little banana, SQIRL jam, coconut flakes, honey or chia seeds. But, let’s discuss the almond butter for a second, shall we? Solstice Canyon hit the scene in LA recently (officially debuts October) and I’m in lurve. Beyond the pretty packaging, the butters are raw, organic and unpasteurized. And delicious!
So, already these aren’t your average almond butters. But then they add pink Himalayan sea salt, coconut nectar for sweetening and coconut oil. If you aren’t into coconut, you won’t like these. I happen to be obsessed with coconut, so I’m pretty stoked on the coconut-y vibes. They are launching with two flavors: original and cardamom & clove (the latter tastes like almond butter and pumpkin pie had a love child). Get into it! Happy snacking.
