Simple Almond Butters Direct From The Farm
Unless you're local to Los Angeles, San Francisco or Santa Barbara farmers markets, you may not know of Fat Uncle Farms almond farm. In the almond business for over 50 years, the family has been producing raw, unpasteurized and pesticide free almonds in a variety of styles and flavors.
Fat Uncle Farm's full farm direct store on Treatmo iOS app takes you through a delicious array of almond flavors from cajun to coconut. But from a basic level their almond butters are just simply delicious and super healthy.
After a visit to a their new farming venture in Paso Robles, the spring of 2016, we learned how they grow their almonds sustainably and about their launch into regenerative farming.
What you discover about almonds while at their farm, looking at the almond trees and talking to the owner Nate, is much more than you will ever glean from a label in a grocery store.
If you look at the ingredients of many store bought options of almond butter you will find sugar and palm oil amongst the items included in the butter. You also won't know where those almonds are from or how they were prepared.
When you order from Fat Uncle Farms Treatmo store, you can see details about the farm in the app that you wouldn't find on a label. You can also see that their ingredients list is simply, almonds. They prepare their butter flavors based on types of almonds such as roasted or sprouted with the exception of chocolate that contains raw almonds and chocolate milk, and a yummy raw almond and raw honey blend.
Not pictured but also available through the Fat Uncle Farms Treatmo store are garlic and herb almond butter, raw almond butter (which is cold-pressed almond butter), and sprouted almond butter.
Apart from great flavor, almonds, especially raw organic almonds impart many health benefits. They have good fats, minerals, fiber and antioxidant compounds. Eating them is linked to better brain health and digestion, bone strength and blood sugar control. Also almonds make you feel full faster, which can reduce your hunger and lead to better weight management.
Almonds have monounsaturated fatty acids that support heart health, weight maintenance and nutrient absorption. The skins of almonds are high in antioxidant flavonoids like vitamin E (also provides skin and anti-aging benefits) that are great for healthy arteries and reducing inflammation. Riboflavin and L-Carnitine in almonds support neurological activity and reduce cognitive decline.
