Cinnamon Almond Butter {+6 Healthy Reasons to Eat Celery}

Healthy Recipe: Cinnamon Almond Butter | healthylivinghowto.com

Celery has long been used for medicinal purposes, dating back to the 9th century. The first recorded use of celery as food was in France in 1623 and then later in the 19th century it was introduced to the United States. During this time period, celery became an exotic food important to the “class” conscious consumer.

Serving celery at your dinner party was a sign of socioeconomic status. This vegetable was so important it was often displayed in a “celery vase” with a prominent presentation on the table. Although we don’t think of celery as medicine or even as a sign of status anymore, its health benefits cannot be denied.

    this might be a weird question… but where did you get the little glass jar? I have been wanting some jars like that for awhile now but cannot find them!

      You will need to add a little bit of oil to get it to come together. Coconut oil works great as well.

    Do the almonds need to be soaked or does it matter? When I make almond milk, I always soak them first. Love your recipes and all the wonderful advice you give both here and on FB.

    Had a nice helping of celery (and carrots and peppers) last night with a homemade buffalo chicken burger. (Used your revolution rolls for the buns.) Yummy! One of the crazy diets I’ve been on in the past told me not to eat celery. Why would any healthy eating plan tell you to NOT eat a veggie??!! Glad I’ve gotten wiser as I’ve gotten older.

    Love the idea of making my own nut butter. I’m only using date syrup and paste for sweetening foods. Will that work for this? I hope so because this sounds really yummy.
