My name is Carmen and I have a serious addiction to almond butter. Having never been exposed to such a wonderful spread, I was slow to adopt this decadent dessert after my boyfriend bought me my very first jar. Little did I know, a few innocent spoonfuls turned into an obsession – a nightly routine of uncontrollable binging of my favourite almond butters (both homemade and store bought). In my quest to find the best butter maker, I have attempted to purchase almost every brand in the market from every city and grocery store I have ever visited. Hence the name of my new blog: ~Love my Nut Butt~
On a serious note..
For those who don’t know me, I created a blog previously documenting my battle with anorexia and how I dealt with the recovery process.
While I am still embarking on a journey to full recovery, I am pleased to say that I stay hopeful for the future and also discovered a new passion for cooking and juicing! Everyday is still a fight but it is important to see food not as an enemy, but as fuel and nourishment for the mind, body, and soul. My family, friends, and loved ones have been of great support and I am extremely fortunate to have them in my life.
With this said, I want to turn the page and begin a new blog illustrating the next chapter of my life. Yes, there will be dark days but we are humans after all. What’s important to remember is, it’s not about being the best, it’s about being better than you were yesterday. I will be sharing you reviews of my many almond butter encounters, quick and easy recipes for meals and juices, and inspiring thoughts for the mind, body, and soul. Butter up because it’s going to be a nutty ride!
