As you guys have probably realised by now, I’m a huge nut butter addict. Almond butter and peanut butter are two of my favourite things to eat and snack on whether it’s on porridge, in a smoothie or on some toast or fruit. You just can’t beat it really. I make my own almond butter and have attempted to make my own peanut butter but it just didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. It didn’t feel like it was worth the effort when it didn’t taste nice.
Buying peanut butter can be a bit of a jungle, there are so many brands who sell really poor quality and add loads of nasty things into their jars (I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to read the labels of what you buy). The only brand I could find in shops really without the additives was Meridian. I haven’t been convinced by their peanut butter to be honest (it’s unsalted so I’ve added a sprinkle on top when I ‘ve used but it’s not quite the same) but it was the best I could get my hands on at the time.
However, I stumbled across Suma’s Organic Peanut Butter in Roots and Fruits on Great Western Road a while back. I was intrigued. It even had added sea salt to it, which seriously makes peanut butter so much better. The jar was quite big, which is great if you eat a lot of it (like I do). I decided to buy it to try it out and WOW. It is delicious. It tastes exactly how peanut butter should do plus with the added bonus of it being organic. I’m usually quite good with portion control but with this, it is tough! I can’t stop and I catch myself eating out of the jar. I know, it’s kind of gross haha.
I’m so happy I found this peanut butter but at the same time maybe it’s not so great considering how much of it I’m eating 😛 Oh well, I have gotten better with limiting myself a little bit, it’s good practice for my willpower.
You guys should definitely try it. or maybe not if you’re like me who becomes slightly obsessed!
