If friends & relatives start asking you, "What is that screeching sound?", you can tell them,
It's the sound of my arteries hardening!"

You know, that spread stuff is not too good for you, right? The fats in nuts are healthier, used in moderation, of course. Maybe you can substitute the spread for a nut butter, one of my favorites, that I forgot to list, is coconut butter, made from the 'meat' of the coconut + a little of the oil. If you like coconut, it is a divine substitute for butter or similar type spreads. I can eat it right out of the jar! The fats in coconut are NOT bad for you, they are high in medium chain triglycerides which are small enough to bypass the lymphatic system and be absorbed directly into the blood stream where they can be used for energy.

I've only tried peanut, almond, hazelnut, and sunflower seed butter. I like each of those though and I'm sure the others are delicious also

Thank you for the advice, and I mean that sincerely.

Most of them are readily available at your local health food store, or they can be made at home.

I usually make my own in small quantaties when I need/want some. But have to be very careful as many nuts cause my skin to break out in oodles of painful pimples.

But my favourite above all others is coconut oil. I know, I know... it is part of the drupe family not the nut family, but it does have nut in the name!!!

I love peanut butter. I've tried almond butter, but it wasn't really appealing to me. I'm just not a big enough almond fan. I've never tried the others.

Yes, I forgot to include my favorite, coconut butter! I would have included it if I was thinking straight! Besides, several others on the list are drupes, as well as legumes & no one worries about that because, as you say, it says 'nut' in the name! That's why I specified "culinary nuts", it's a catch all term.

Unless you are allergic to those nuts, it's the androgen in the nuts that causes the pimples in those sensitive to it. The nut androgen is bioidentical to you body's androgen hormone & androgen’s cause the enlargement and over-stimulation of the sebaceous glands in people with acne. This leads to the over-production of sebum, and coupled with a sluggish exfoliation process leads to blocked pores and acne. Sensitivity to these androgen’s also causes acne during the menstrual cycle and sometimes in pregnancy or during menopause.

I feel so sheltered that I haven't even tried anything but peanut butter. Not even Pecan butter and I'm from Texas!

I like all the ones I've tried. I didn't realize tahini was actually "sesame butter" but on second thought: "duh!"

I never met a nut butter I didn't like! Sunbutter (made of sunflower seeds) is particularly tasty..Trader Joe's brand is what I've had. I more often eat organic peanut butter though, because the sunbutter has sugar added and I try to avoid that.

The only thing on that list I have eaten is peanut butter. I don't really eat enough spreads to justify spending a lot of money on them. I bought my last jar of peanut butter a year ago and it's still half-full.
