3 Healthy Lunch Ideas With Almond Butter

3 Healthy Lunch Ideas With Almond Butter

Tired of the same, old, boring lunches? You’re in luck! Today I’m sharing 3 healthy lunch ideas that are full of flavor and also…. Almond Butter! As you know, at Healthy Grocery Girl we love to discover and share with you yummy products that makes it easier to eat well. Today’s “Grocery Find” is Naturally More Almond Butter which I love because it’s tasty, is totally wholesome with natural ingredients and is packed with probiotics! Probiotics are “good bacteria” that can help improve digestive health (which may help reduce gas and bloating woot woot!), boost our immunity and can even support hormone balance. Wow! Those are some helpful little bacterias. 

Check out today’s new video & let me know in the comments which recipe you’re most excited to try first!! 

Have a wonderful day Healthy Grocery Girls and Guys! xx Megan & The HGG Team
