I was very pleasantly surprised with yet another box full of more fabulous products from Living Tree Community Foods livingtreecommunity.com. Thank you once again Living Tree Community and Jesse Schwartz. You are spoiling me. Now I need to do my best to do you proud. This time I was gifted with a bag of almond flour, more almond butter, walnut butter and cashew butter. I am going to make something special with the almond butter and the almond meal as soon as i get back into the kitchen, later on today. And I have some creative ideas for the other products as well. You will all just have to stay tuned to see what I create with my magic wooden spoon and these delectable products.
Almond flour is low in carbs and is packed with nutrients. It is rich in Vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant. It is believed that eating almond flour or almond meal will reduce the “bad” LDL cholesterol and insulin resistance.
Walnuts are an excellent source of essential fatty omega 3 fatty acids. These cannot be produced in the body and need to be obtained through food sources. Walnuts are also high in protein and phosphorous, and both Vitamins B and D.
Cashews are actually not nuts, but are seeds attached to a fruit, grown all throughout many tropical areas of the world. Originally, cashews were grown in Brazil and have been a favorite ever since they were discovered. They are also rich in both iron and copper, which are both good for the hemoglobin of the blood, and helps transport oxygen throughout the bloodstream. I was VERY excited to receive this product since cashews are my favorite “nut”. I have some very creative ideas for this. I can hardly wait.
I know there are some very yummy recipes coming from all of these delicious products in the immediate future. Thank you once again, Living Tree Community and Jesse Schwartz. This is so AWESOME!!!!!
