# 3 - EXPANDING "SCD" > * NUT BUTTERS ARE HEALTHY GOURMET TREATS


Those with inflamed intestines can usually tolerate SMALL AMOUNTS of nut flour baked goodies or nut butters before they can tolerate whole nuts.

Before you buy nut butters at the supermarket, or health food store, you will want to read the label carefully. The healthiest nut butters are made with organic nuts, and have no hydrogenated oils, sugar or preservatives added.

 

Seeds and nuts that are roasted at high temperatures loose some of their healthy Essential Fatty Acids; so raw seeds and nuts are healthier.  You also want to check the sodium content, especially if you have blood pressure concerns and are sensitive to salt. 

 

NUT BUTTER USES:

Mix a tablespoon of any nut butter into your homemade yogurt smoothie or place a dollop atop your egg and banana pancake and drizzle with a little honey. You will also be surprised by the sweet, delightful flavor nut butters give to slices of raw fruit. Organic nut butters are the perfect afternoon snack. A tablespoon is enough to satisfy and give you an extra boost of energy. Plus, they taste great in SCD cake and cookie recipes.
