The Great Nut Butter Debate
There are many things that I find perplexing – is it safe to swim right after eating, should I run with scissors, is there life outside our universe, is almond butter better than peanut butter for losing fat?
A recent article by Cristina Powell was helpful in answering the last question. She explores the pros and cons of each of these vital foods. Did you know that peanuts are technically a legume/grain and not a nut? So, if you are on a strict paleo diet you may want to avoid peanut butter!
The bottom line is that there is really not a difference as long as the one you choose does not contain any hydrogenated fats. Make sure your butter of choice contains only raw ingredients and is unsweetened. Organic may be a better choice.

Where do you stand on this serious question? What is your favorite? Are you on any special diet?
