Almond flour is a popular alternative to traditional wheat flour. It's low in carbs, packed with nutrients and has a slightly sweet taste. It also provides more health benefits than traditional wheat flour. Almond flour is particularly rich in vitamin E, a group of fat-soluble compounds that act as antioxidants in your body. Magnesium is another nutrient that's abundant in almond flour. It's involved in many processes in your body and provides several benefits, including improved blood sugar control, reduced insulin resistance and lower blood pressure.

Butter has no carbs! I mean how awesome is that?! You won’t know this from reading any product label, but one of the highlights of butter nutrition, especially grass-fed butter, is its high level of butyric acid. This health-promoting acid is only found in a few foods, and butter is one of them. By consuming grass-fed butter, you directly increase your intake of butyric acid, which science has shown can decrease inflammation. Grass fed butter is better for your heart health, excellent vitamin A source, energy-boosting and appetite-suppressing.
