My family has a passion for high quality foods and healthy lifestyles. Spending time in the kitchen, while experimenting with various recipes, has always been therapeutic after a long work week. As a mother of 2 young children, I am always looking for nutritious snacks and meals to appease picky eaters. My Grandfather’s homemade almond butter has always been a crowd pleaser and does not compare to what is commercially available. After much encouragement by family and friends, I decided to leave the Corporate world and start a small food business in 2012. We are excited to share our line of Premium Nut Butters with you! ~Jaime Foster, Georgia Grinders
As a mom, Mimi (grandmother) and wife, these words ring very true. Sometimes it’s difficult to please everyone when it comes to snacking; especially healthy ones that are equally delicious.
Growing up, peanut butter was always a favorite staple and my automatic go-to. Whether mom mixed it with jelly for a sandwich, spread it on vanilla wafers for a sweet treat, added a few bananas in true Elvis Presley style or simply handed me the jar and a spoon, it was always welcomed with a smile and an open mouth.
While peanut butter was a much healthier option than say a candy bar, looking back and knowing much more about nutrition, mom’s peanut butter wasn’t very healthy by today’s standards. We didn’t have many choices back then, and our peanut butter was fairly loaded with trans fats, salt and sugar. That is the tremendous difference in Georgia Grinder’s Premium Nut Butters. They are good, and truly good for you.
At Georgia Grinders, we strive to create extraordinary products from simple, all natural ingredients. After all, it is our belief that every culinary experience be savored and define the taste of health. Sourcing the highest quality, natural and Non-GMO ingredients, Georgia Grinders Premium Nut Butters are handcrafted in small batches to ensure quality, freshness and flavor in a facility that we own and operate in Atlanta, Georgia.
So what happens when you bring together several women, food bloggers, recipe developers and chefs, then toss in a few jars of Georgia Grinders Nut Butters? One fantastic meal!
While nut butters are amazing for snacking and desserts, they are also fantastic for savory options as well.
Lisa chose the cashew butter and created this awesome Butternut Squash Spicy Orange & Ginger Cashew Butter Quinoa. Quinoa and peanut butter? YES. Who knew?
I had similar thoughts and created a Chilled Cashew Butter & Pumpkin Noodle Salad.
After enjoying all of these delicious offerings we moved on to dessert.
At the end of the dinner, not only were we pleasantly full of creative, delightful foods, we were also well educated and enlightened on the vast differences in nut butters.
From savory to sweet and creamy to crunchy, our premium nut butters are perfect for individuals and families who are on the go, but are looking for high quality foods that fit into a healthy lifestyle. With no added sugars or oils, it is OK to grab a spoon and dig in!~Jaime Foster, Georgia Grinders
