Sticky Fingers.

Yesterday I caught myself red handed…with sticky fingers.

Just when I thought I had licked the nut butter off of each one of my fingers, I found a little nut butter left over on the inside of my palm.

The next thing I know…I’m trying to get nut butter out of the crevice of my camera lens.

Oh boy…I am THAT food blogger.

I mean, I might as well walk the aisles of my fave department store with my shirt inside out.

That would be less embarrassing 😉

Let’s talk snacks.

I’m nuts for nuts.

Rewind…let’s talk healthy snacks.

This isn’t just any nut butter its a triple nut butter!

IMG_1108

That’s like nuts x’s THREE!

To be specific, a combo of almonds, cashews, and walnuts.

So, this stuff is chock full of those healthy Omega 3 fatty acids. Like…duh.

Oh, then we added ground flaxseed for extra extra health benefits.

The flaxseed gives this nut butter even more omega 3’s! Oh, and lots of fiber!

Not to mention, it makes for the silkiest nut butter on the face of the planet!

For kicks I added some fine sea salt and vanilla bean.

IMG_1124

I just want to dive head first into a vat of this stuff.

IMG_1125

Or, heck…maybe even make an exfoliative mask with it.

IMG_1127

That is…if I don’t eat my face off beforehand.

IMG_1128

If I were stranded on a desert island…this would be one of the three things in my bag…along with burnt toast and my laptop.

IMG_1129

My laptop? So I could watch re-runs of The Hills on Netflix…duh.

IMG_1131

Brody Jenner…be still my beating heart.

IMG_1132

I may have even traded in my daily dose of peanut butter for this stuff.

IMG_1134

GASP!

IMG_1135

Excuse me while I go sit in the corner now.

IMG_1139

Shame…shame.
