Good to quench thirst (chew on the leaves and find out)

The leaves also contain a high amount of the mineral, calcium

CHIVES

Vitamin K – strengthening bones and limiting neuronal damage in the brain

Vitamin A –protect you from lung and mouth cancers.

They’re an excellent source of calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese and also provide healthy amounts of thiamin, niacin, pyridoxine, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, riboflavin, and zinc.

Homemade Almond & Walnut Butter!

 

OH MY GOODNESS! 🤷🏽‍♀️

Why on Earth have I been spending so much money on overly priced organic, raw nut butter? Loving making the basic things we need from scratch! 

Secret ingredient is a tablespoon of vegan bee free honey @blenditup.foods

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil or any neural flavoured oil

OPTIONAL

  • 1 tbsp of Himalayan pink salt
  • Bee Free Honey add to your liking

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and roast nuts for 10-13 mins.
  2. Let the nuts cool completely then transfer to your blender.
  3. If you are using additional oil, add the oil to your blender first then the nuts.
  4. Depending on the power of you’re machine it can take anything from 1 minute to 10 mins! Be patient as it will break down.
  5. Transfer the almond butter to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.

YUM YUM 😋

Enjoy guys!!
