In recent years, there has been increasingly more attention given to the connection between what people eat and how healthy they are. With our Western society being inundated with foods steeped in grains, sugars, dairy products and processed foods, the United States has become the melting pot for such undesirable traits as obesity and a proliferate string of formerly unheard-of diseases.

Naturally, many have felt it worthwhile to consider some traditional alternatives to our standard American diet. In the search for answers to the fat, low-energy and chronic illness epidemic, many ideas are emerging as to which is truly the most suitable diet for humans to consume to achieve optimum nutrition and lifelong vitality.

One such recommended diet is the Paleo diet. This model suggests that we only eat things that were readily available before the rise of agriculture. The staples of Paleo eating are meat and fish, fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds. The reputed benefits of eating this way are numerous, but weight loss, increased well-being and higher energy levels top the list.

Since much of the protein we consume as a nation comes from the plethora of grain, dairy and legume sources, all which play a non-existent role in hardcore Paleo eating, many wonder how to make certain they are getting sufficient protein per day without having to eat large portions of meat to do so.

Here’s to the Nuts

As mentioned above, nuts are a core feature in the diet.

And what about nut butters? You guessed it, Maisie Jane’s nut butters are an excellent way to integrate the perfect amount of protein into your Paleo diet.

What can the jars of delicious swirls of nutty freshness offer you?

  • No added sugar
  • No added oils
  • No added salt
  • Non-GMO verified
  • No wheat or gluten
  • No preservatives
  • Kosher certified
  • Vegan
  • 100% dry roasted

That’s about a primal as you can get. Just think about it. Would our ancient predecessors really have had any sugar, wheat or gluten, salt, oils, GMOs or preservatives added into their food choices? Didn’t think so.

But do you feel like the taste might be compromised without all those flavor-masking add-ins that Maisie Jane’s refuses to combine with the high-quality nuts which are farmed, harvested and processed with green, earth-friendly conscientiousness?

When you open that jar and get a whiff of the fragrant California almond orchards packed inside, you’ll recognize the superiority and instantly know that your taste buds are in for a treat.

So, after all, who needs what isn’t needed to enjoy a healthful, flavorful Paleo-friendly nut butter?

How Are Nuts So Good for You?

Let’s look at the almonds used in Maisie Jane’s almond butter, for instance.  The health and nutrition contained in one serving of these humble little nuts are quite astounding, like the fact that they are an excellent source of vegan protein, monounsaturated – or “good” – fat, Vitamin E, magnesium, fiber, vitamins and minerals, plus the extras of naturally being free of sodium, cholesterol and gluten. All that, and so tasty and versatile too!

Who would have thought that such a little nut could offer so much?

So, as you can see, nut butters are perfect components of a Paleo diet, offering a whole host of health-promoting and lip-smacking advantages.

How Can Nut Butters Enhance Your Paleo Foods?

Sure, you can enjoy Maisie Jane’s nut butter with fresh fruit or vegetable slices. Or you can simply eat it out of the jar for a high-protein snack. Or you could add some to your morning smoothie for a bit of nutty flavor amidst your fruits and greens.

You could also think adventurously.

What about using it in a marinade for meat or veggies? Or what about a dose of irresistible but Paleo approved chocolate almond butter cups? Or some chocolate almond butter cookies? Just because Paleo functions on the premise of simple and easily accessible ingredients does not mean that your scope of imagination is limited. Not at all! The sky is the limit, and Maisie Jane’s delicious nut butters will help inspire your inner creativity.

So, if you are wondering how nut butters fit into your desire to eat a Paleo diet, no worries. They totally fit. They help you maintain your diet and fitness goals, providing excellent nutrient dense and tasty snack and ingredient alternatives you can feel good about eating on a regular basis.

Of course, you don’t have to be following the Paleo diet to enjoy the protein packed tastiness of Maisie Jane’s nut butters. They will complement any diet. Any diet, that is, except a taste-free one.
