Apricots are a great source of Vitamin A and carotenes, both of which are anti-oxidants and support healthy vision.  Apricots also contain zea-xanthin, which helps protect eyes against age-related macular disease. We use only unsulphured and unsweetened dried apricots for baking.

Almond butter is rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids (oleic & palmitoleic acids) that help in lowering LDL or “bad cholesterol”. Almonds are also an excellent source of vitamin E which protects us from oxygen-free radicals and are packed with B-complex vitamins.  If that wasn’t enough, almonds (and almond butter) have high levels of essential minerals such as manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium.

Sit back and enjoy with a cup of coffee or your favorite green tea…it’s learning to live again….it’s the simple things.
