real food abcs - n for nut butter


real food abcs - n for nut butter | suzyhomemaker.net
I have a confession. I originally was going to title this after that popular hazelnut chocolate spread from Italy that is all over Pinterest. I love that stuff. Plus I wanted to include something fun; a treat to the real food abc series. The reason I went with nut butter? Well that popular brand has some ingredients that I would consider unreal. However, a chocolately, hazelnut, sugary spread can be a part of your real food kitchen.

So how can a chocolate hazelnut spread be real food?

It all comes down to ingredients.

Of course you can always make it yourself, but even when you want to eat more real food, you don't always want to make everything from scratch. I found the following brands whose ingredients lists fall into the real category.
