Why Almond Butter?

by HEAB on November 29, 2008

My first post – how exciting.  I’m not really sure what direction this blog will take, but I’m looking forward to having an outlet for my thoughts and ideas.  Maybe people will read them, and maybe they won’t.  Either way, I’m happy to finally enter the blogging world.

So, some of you may be curious about the name of my blog.  Several different titles competed against one another, but in the end, I chose Heather Eats Almond Butter.  It was difficult to find a short phrase that would convey all the topics I want to cover.  I hope to share about my weight loss and encourage others with health tips that have helped me.  I love discussing fitness and learning about different workouts, but I also wanted a forum for my thoughts…and struggles with food, as well as a place to include some of my favorite recipes.  Almond butter is one of my favorite foods in the whole world, and I eat it everyday.  It was my companion throughout my weight loss and has stayed with me as I maintain a healthy weight.  Losing weight does not mean giving up your favorite foods, especially ones loaded with good fats.  Yes, I eat fat, and I enjoy every spoonful!

So, I hope what I have to say will be of some encouragement to someone out there.  Thanks for joining me on this journey!

Now, I have got to go out and try some Almond butter!! I am a peanut butter freak and if it replaces the PB in my life, it has got to be good!

Thanks Heather for clearing up the name thing! It is very cute and your picture is lovely. I know your mother has got to be soooo proud of you! Keep up the good work and God Bless!

8/18/09… just discovered your blog and feel like I need to start at the beginning to really “get” what you’re talking about.. I have burning questions..like how’d you get to Colorado from Nashville.. and why?… you have such a healthy outlook on life, food and exercise and I want to learn how you got there… not to mention that almond butter is one of all time favorite things – ever! Give me a slice of ezekial bread, almond butter and half a banana and I’m in HEAVEN!!! I really look forward to getting to “know” you.. sorry I don’t have a blog so you can know more about me.. I don’t have the blog mojo.. LOL

Yeah you!

You did well in choosing that name for your blog. It was what bought me here actually. Almond Butter is better than Peanut butter for the reasons I’ve listed in my blog. Hope I can contribute to your blog often. All the best murdering the fat.

Thanks Ross! Please contribute as I am interested in Primal Eating (although I’m not very good at it!). I’ve read a good bit on the topic at Arthur Devany and Mark’s Daily Apple.
