I tried a new thing this weekend… cross country skiing! It was so fun, and only super awkward for the first five minutes. I fell twice, but what can you really expect. It makes me so extraordinarily happy to be outside in nature. Nothing compares, really. The air is fresh and the persistent sense of freedom seems to linger hours after you leave the trails.
Anyways, I am feeling pretty tired and sick right now so I’ll keep this short. I hardly have the energy to sit upright and type this out. I think it might be the changing weather? Looking forward to lots of soup and blankets and hopefully some cat naps 🙂
I was so excited when I first made this magical nut butter because to be totally honest, I just can’t afford to buy things like almond butter, cashew butter, or any of those delicious-sounding vanilla-spiced luxury nut butter in the health food stores. It is still a bit pricey to make your own because the nuts can be expensive, but it is definitely cheaper and so worth it as a special treat. I am savoring every spoonful of this stuff.
I really wanted to make maple roasted nut butter, but I was worried that adding maple syrup to the nut butter would make it seize up. Spoiler alert: it did. I found a solution though! After adding the maple syrup, I simply added a couple of teaspoons of coconut oil and it came together again into silky, smooth, buttery goodness. Mmmm.
I hope you make this nut butter and stay healthy through these strange and blustering days!
Love you, babes xx
