1. Fueling Your Healthy Cooking and Meal Prepping

One of the most significant steps you can take towards a healthier lifestyle is to prepare your own meals at home. Cooking allows you to control the ingredients, portion sizes, and cooking methods, making it easier to make nutritious choices.  

Maisie Jane’s almonds and nut butter are versatile ingredients that can elevate your healthy cooking game. They also play a crucial role in meal prepping, a time-saving technique that can help you stay on track with your health resolutions.  

Almonds can be chopped and sprinkled on prepped salads or used as a crunchy topping for pre-portioned meals. 

Maisie Jane’s almond butter can be portioned into convenient containers, making it easy to incorporate into your pre-made meals as a flavorful and nutritious addition. Meal prepping not only ensures that you have healthy options readily available but also saves you time and effort during your busy week. 

For those pursuing a plant-based or vegetarian diet, almonds and almond butter from Maisie Jane’s are excellent sources of plant-based protein. Adding them to your meals can help you meet your protein needs without relying on animal products.

2. Post-Gym Snacking Done Right

After an intense workout, your body needs the right nutrients to recover and rebuild. Maisie Jane’s almonds and nut butter are ideal for post-gym snacking because they provide a combination of protein, healthy fats, and fiber to refuel your body: 

  • Almonds: A handful of almonds makes for an excellent post-workout snack. They’re packed with protein and healthy fats to help repair and build muscle, while their natural crunch satisfies your cravings. Maisie Jane’s offers a wide range of flavored almonds, such as Tamari Almonds or Honey Glazed Almonds, which can satisfy your snack cravings without compromising your health goals. These flavored almonds provide a delightful mix of savory and sweet options for when you need a wholesome snack to keep you on track.
  • Nut Butter: Spread some Maisie Jane’s almond butter on whole-grain crackers or apple slices for a quick and delicious post-workout snack. The protein in almond butter helps repair and build muscle tissue, and the healthy fats provide sustained energy. Maisie Jane’s almond butter can also be a fantastic addition to a morning smoothie. It not only adds creaminess but also provides a dose of healthy fats and protein, keeping you full and satisfied.  

3. Packing Nutrient-Rich School Lunches

Ensuring your health and well-being also means providing nutritious meals for your kids. Packing school lunches can be a daunting task, but with Maisie Jane’s products, you can make it easier and more exciting for your children: 

  • Almonds: Pack a small container of almonds in your child’s lunchbox for a crunchy, satisfying snack. They provide essential nutrients and are an excellent alternative to sugary snacks. 
  • Nut Butter: Make delicious almond butter and banana sandwiches on whole-grain bread or use almond butter as a dip for carrot and celery sticks. It’s a kid-friendly option that’s both tasty and nutritious. 

4. Maintaining Your Health Resolutions with Ease

Staying on track with your health resolutions doesn’t have to be an uphill battle. By incorporating Maisie Jane’s almonds and nut butter into your daily routine, you can enjoy their delicious flavors while making healthier choices.

Almond Butter and Banana Overnight Oats

– 1/2 cup rolled oats (gluten-free if preferred) 

– 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or your choice of milk) 

– 2 tablespoons Maisie Jane’s Almond Butter (creamy or crunchy) 

– 1 ripe banana, mashed 

– 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional for sweetness) 

– 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

– 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 

– Toppings (optional): Sliced bananas, chopped almonds, a drizzle of almond butter, or a sprinkle of chia seeds 


  1. Mix the Base: In a mason jar or airtight container, combine the rolled oats and almond milk. Stir well to ensure the oats are fully immersed in the milk.
  2. Add Almond Butter: Add the Maisie Jane’s almond butter to the oats and almond milk mixture. Stir until the almond butter is well incorporated. It will add creaminess and a nutty flavor to your oats.
  3. Mash Banana: In a separate bowl, mash the ripe banana until it’s smooth. Add the mashed banana to the oat mixture.
  4. Sweeten and Flavor: If you desire a touch of sweetness, add honey or maple syrup to taste. Also, add the ground cinnamon and vanilla extract for extra flavor. Stir everything thoroughly to combine all the ingredients.
  5. Seal and Refrigerate: Seal the mason jar or container and refrigerate it overnight, or for at least 4-6 hours. This allows the oats to absorb the liquid and the flavors to meld together.

Tip: When you’re ready to eat, give the oats a good stir. You can add more almond milk if you prefer a thinner consistency. Top your almond butter and banana overnight oats with slices of banana, chopped almonds, a drizzle of almond butter, or a sprinkle of chia seeds for added texture and nutrition.
