Change-Up Lunchtime With All-Natural Almond Butter
Natural Almond Butter Chicken Salad
This may sound a little crazy to some, but you can totally make chicken salad using natural almond butter! This is a new twist on a classic lunchtime favorite that combines the yummy flavors of almond butter with healthy shredded chicken, pinto beans, and southwest spices like cumin, chili powder, and paprika. Trust us when we say that once you taste this delightful, healthful chicken salad, you won’t go back to the plain, traditional way of eating chicken salad.
While we’re on the topic of chicken salad, these little gems are truly delicious, filling, and relatively guilt-free! If you’re looking to reduce your lunchtime carb and bread intake, then these will make the perfect lunch for you. Simply follow the almond butter chicken salad recipe and instead of spooning a dollop of chicken salad on bread, fill a couple Roma or Campari tomatoes with chicken salad.
For those who are constantly on-the-go, who prefer their lunches to be as mobile as they are, our Healthy Banana Nut Bread Smoothie is just for you. Simply combine almond milk, gourmet almond butter, apples, zucchini, carrots, and chia seeds, and you’ll have one amazing smoothie that can help you power through your day.
Banana Slices and Almond Butter Spread
If you love bananas, there really isn’t a better combination than natural almond butter and bananas (unless you prefer all natural peanut butter and bananas, that is!). For some, a banana is all they’ll eat for lunch, which, in all honesty simply isn’t enough. Add a smear of gourmet almond butter to banana slices with a sprinkle of cinnamon, and lunchtime has suddenly gotten a lot tastier. Bananas are packed with potassium that is good for your heart and muscles, while almonds provide plenty of antioxidants. This delicious lunch is sure to get you through your day. Add a side of grapes, berries, or carrots for an extra boost of health.
