Well, Christmas came early this year.

Sorry this a grainy iPhone picture, but there's no mistaking the product, it's SunButter!!!!!!!!

The VERY nice folks at SunButter sent me this lovely package which I received on the day that I ran out! It's funny how things work out like that.

The different types are Crunchy, Natural, Organic, Natural Omega-3, and Creamy. The On The Go packets are Natural and Creamy. My favorite is the Crunchy!

One thing I like about SunButter is that they have a small list of ingredients:

Sunflower Seed
Dehydrated Cane Juice
Natural Mixed Tocopherols (to preserve freshness)

Here are some other facts:

Their Sunflower seeds come from the USA
SunButter has less Saturated fat than peanut butter
It's gluten free

This morning, I had the Natural on a piece of toast. Delicious. Duh.

SunButter is pretty savory, so if you tend to fill up easily, just don't use as much! Also, I keep mine in the refrigerator (which is suggested) because it keeps the product fresher and you don't have to do as much stirring (the oils can separate from the rest of the product not unlike natural peanut butter).

The SunButter website has a lot of recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks that I need to check out. I primarily use the product for breakfast foods, but I think it's time to explore other options too.

THIS recipe for Thai Chicken Pasta in SunButter Sauce looks especially tempting!

Here's another for Custom Energy Bars. I really would like to make my own energy/granola bars because buying those puppies all the time adds up!

This day has started off really well, hope yours has too!
