As a firm believer that food should be super tasty, yet packed with nutrients and energy, Rebecca decided not to settle for what was on the market, and started creating the nut butters that she herself longed for. We catch up with her to find out more about her very own range of locally produced healthy nut butters.
When asked what led to the beginning of this venture, Rebecca says, ‘’The more I shopped around, the more I realised that there were not enough nut butters available on the market – butters that didn’t have added oil, added sugar, and so many other unnecessary ingredients that I could never pronounce. I took on the challenge to create a range of butters made from 100% natural ingredients.”
‘’When I opened the jar, I was surprised with all the pecans bits. I love to add it to my apple as a snack.’’
Most store-bought brands use oils, preservatives, and hydrogenated fats, which makes the nut butter last almost a year (or more) on the shelf. Nothing that lasts for that long can possibly be healthy.
What makes Rebecca’s nut butters unique? The nuts are blended with their natural oils for that pure, yummy taste. Freshly made upon order, her nut butters have a shelf life of not more than four months… but believe me, a jar will surely not last that long.
Packed with protein and healthy fats, these butters make the perfect addition to both savoury and sweet meals – not to mention the fact that they are super addictive so you can even enjoy by the spoonful!
‘’How to describe the chai-spiced almond butter?
Christmas in a jar. Enough said.’’
Rebecca says that ‘’when it comes to nut butters, the less ingredients the better. When it comes to my nut butters, you’ll only find one ingredient. As the label reads, ‘Nuttin’ But Nuts!, they’re made of nothing but nuts… and of
course lots of love!’’
Rebecca started off with four nut butters − the classic peanut butter, almond butter, hazelnut butter, and a sunflower seed butter. She then launched the cashew butter, which won the hearts of many, including her own. ‘’ The cashew butter is so addictive. I can’t stop eating it straight from the jar. I have to hide it to stop myself from emptying it in one go.’’
‘’Once you get your hands on your first jar, there’s no going back!!!’’
Positive feedback and many happy people later, Rebecca started experimenting by blending a mixture of nuts and adding flavour to her nut butters by using spices. She launched her top sellers − the 3-nut butter, which is a blend of peanuts, cashews with crunchy pecans, and her absolute favourite, which is the chai-spiced almond butter.
Through all these changes, one thing has stayed the same − her passion for delicious products made with the healthiest wholesome ingredients she can find!
‘’Six months ago, this was a dream. Fast forward to today and I am actually living this dream. I would have never in a million years expected this outcome. I’ve met incredible souls along the way which made my journey a very exciting one. Although it was my hard work and determination that led me here today, I wouldn’t have done it without the support of my loved ones. I am forever grateful.’’
‘’ I add it to everything! From fruit to salads and
even marinated my salmon fillet with almond
butter once. Super delicious!’’
Rebecca is determined to continue sharing her ideas with people who value their health. She plans on expanding her nut butter range and working on exciting and new products. She tells us she’s “ready to make next year one to remember.” The first thing on the list is a vegan chocolate spread, which in her opinion, “tastes better than the real thing.” So for all the chocolate lovers out there, be ready for a treat. She’s got many things in store for 2019 and Rebecca insists that “obstacles in life do not mean the end of the world.” She will continue being herself, spread positive vibes and share her passion with others who appreciate it.’
