Sorry for no blog post yesterday. I (Michelle) have had a few really bad days with my eczema so I have not been motivated to sit down and do work. When I am going through a rough patch it literally takes over my mind, my body. I cannot focus on anything besides not itching. And then when I do itch I get upset. Then cry. I feel horrible as I have not been able to help Lori as much with Madison. I feel like a bad aunt. But Lori reassures me they are fine, just focus on me getting better. I will give more of an update tomorrow.
Today we are in the kitchen making some of our favorite things –> coconut and nut butters!!
We love making our nut/seed butters at home as it is easy to do using a vitamix blender or food processor. And it is much cheaper than buying store bought brands.

There is no wrong or right way to make nut or seed butters. We are just sharing how we do it. There are a ton of recipes out there. They are easy to make and customize using different flavorings.
All we do is take a few cups of a nut or seed and blend until creamy. Although sometimes we stop short to have a thicker nut butter. And we get lazy haha. We usually soak and dry the nuts and seeds, but this is optional. We are obsessed with coconut butter.
Have fun making nut/seed and coconut butter friends!
