Home-Maed: Vanilla Honey Mixed Nut Butter feat. Wedderspoon Organic Honey

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

I am beyond excited about this post. Not only because its about food, but I have a new favorite product to share with you that has a ton of health benefits! Wedderspoon is a family owned company that provides their customers with ethical, premium organically certified Manuka Honey. This honey is the next best thing to gold and heres why. It is a superfood! Raw Honey contains live enzymes which have a long list of health benefits like aiding in digestion. Beechwood honey in particular is the one that I am using for this recipe. Beeachwood honey also contains Prebiotic's, not to be confused with probiotics, prebiotics still contain good bacteria but they actually have more health benefits! I am going to post a separate blog post just on Pro + Prebiotics tomorrow :)  

Now on to the mae-n event! I LOVE nut butters and when you break it down they can get pretty pricey when you are buying raw, organic, all real everything, delicious nut butters. I do not know if anyone can relate to this but everyone in my family has a favorite nut, a nut they do not like and then there are the nuts we fight over... pecans.... if you were wondering. So when we buy trail mix or bags of mixed nuts there are always leftovers, then we buy more bags, so we end up with bags of partially eaten nuts. Well theres an app for that... not really but I do have a solution. Grind it all up, flavor it and bam! you have home-maed nut butter! The flavor possibilities are endless and I will be posting others as I compile more bags of half eaten trail mix :) 

You can get your hands on some Wedderspoon Honey HERE

This stuff is so yummy! It goes great with fresh fruit, carrots, celery or you can freeze it for 30 minutes to an hour for a healthy icing on top of your protein muffins

A special thanks to Kelly + Alison from Wedderspoon for being so sweet to send us some of their a-mae-zing honey!

I was hesitant posting this video because I do not want anyone to think I am being judgmental or dissing partying. That is not my motive. All I wanted to do was give my opinion and advice how to save yourself from making poor decisions that you might regret later. We all want respect, we need to present ourselves in a way that shows we respect ourselves first. Also College can be tricky to get the hang of. We all want to fit in but watch the video to see what I have to say about fitting in because we were not mae-d to fit in ;)

Let me know what you all think, remember this is out of love not judgment:)

Plus we have a really awesome print out for you! Its a pre-party checklist to help you get ready for a night out!
