Newest Vice

Prepared food industry, I hate you. You keep on coming out with irresistible stuff. And by the way, Mother Nature... I don't hate you because you do some really awesome work but let's be honest, you are a cruel bitch sometimes. Like, the way you make stuff that's bad for us taste so good. But back to the prepared foods industry and this evil temptation.

I know... almonds are healthy, right, so this isn't that bad? That's what they want us to think. They don't want us to read the required Nutrition Facts part of the label and see that it has 14 grams of fat and 13 grams of carbohydrates per unrealistically small serving.

So far we've tried it on whole wheat bagels and on graham crackers. The jar is almost empty. I'm going to try to resist the temptation to buy more. For a while.


  1. I will have to look for that. I have a sinking suspicion I may be developing a peanut allergy, so no more peanut butter....

    (I won't eat it again until I'm around other people, just in case I have a bad reaction).

    Is it gritty? I tried some almond butter (different brand) once and it was so gritty I never bought it again.

    1. It's not gritty. It's a lot sweeter than peanut butter though.

  2. I'm still gonna look for it; a spoon of it could serve as dessert (when I start eating desserts again....)
