I made my very first (I think) non-vegan green monster!
It was good....but then - SHAZAM!
Though, as far as the straight-up green monster base goes, this one beat it:
I rounded out my snack (of the top green monster and walnuts) with a slice of whole rye bread, Artisana almond butter, and strawberry jam.
Now that's smart snacking! Vitamins, minerals, protein, carbs, sugars, and healthy fats - everything that my brain needs to do this chemistry properly!
Seriously, I actually notice that I'm smarter when I eat lots of fats and carbs. It makes sense (we could get into a long, scientific explanation, if you want), but isn't that cool? I encourage you guys to try it out! FAT. IS. AWESOME. :)
Do you eat a lot of fat?
What's your favorite source of it? I like nuts and nut butters, but that's just me. :P
**************LIVING, LEARNING, EATING'S GIVEAWAY!**************
After I reviewed Artisana's amazing organic almond butter, it's not a big surprise that people wanted to try it themselves - after all, it's pretty fantastic! SOOOOOOOOO...the generous folks over at Artisana (thanks, Jaisan) have agreed to let me giveaway an assortment of their tasty nut butter squeeze packs, as well as an 8 oz jar of the reader's choice of any of their nut butters (except Cashini and Tahini) to one lucky reader (in the United States)! I'm choosing the winner the old fashioned way (name out of a hat - er, handbag). Here's how you can get entries:
1) Subscribe to my blog, then let me know in the comments section of this post.
2) Follow me (Live, Learn, Eat) on Twitter, then let me know in the comments section of this post.
You get two entries if you do both. ;) And don't forget to let me know what flavor of Artisana's awesome nut butter you want for your 8oz jar! The giveaway ends next Wednesday, October 12, and I'll announce the winner on my blog!
Good luck! :)
