Inspiration from a Lifelong Vegetarian
– Writing and Photos

unnamedThe timing was perfect. Just as I was becoming bored with Trader Joe’s almond butter and peanut butter occupying space in the fridge, the package of Artisana Foods products arrived, to my delight. I was familiar with the company from snacking on their amazing coconut butter over the years, but the nut products opened up a new world of protein options. The originality of the flavors and high quality of the walnut, macadamia, pecan, cashew, and almond butters really stand out. Nutritionally speaking, the products are not only organic but raw, and lack gluten, dairy, sugar, and salt. And who doesn’t feel good buying from a company that supports small organic family farms?

The smooth texture is the most noticeable feature of these nut butters, which are decadent and fresh-tasting additions to meals and snacks. One of the best breakfasts I have had in eons was a gluten-free banana pancake with spoonfuls of these spreads on top. For those indulging in chocolate, Artisana Foods makes a cacao bliss spread that looks great, as well. You will go nuts over these products.
