DIY Almond Butter

Almond butter, which is equally as delicious as regular peanut butter, is more nutritious than most other types of sandwich spreads and consuming it promotes a whole host of health benefits. In addition to helping your heart, almond butter can help lower blood pressure, control blood sugar, manage weight, and is full of antioxidants. Almonds are also high in monounsaturated fats, the same type of health-promoting fats that are found in olive oil, which have been associated with reduced risk of heart disease. The good fats contained in almonds keep you healthy (just like eating avocados)!

French Onion Chicken

Onions have long been believed to have restorative powers. They are lauded for boosting immunity, regulating blood sugar, reducing inflammation and promoting heart health. Rosemary is also said to help increase immunity, soothe the stomach, stimulate blood flow and (if you’re into essential oils) is often used to boost mood. All that being true, it makes sense to use them both for soup. And people have been doing just that for eons.
