Dr Jockers Comments:
I have always been a fan of nut butters and was completely hooked on them for a good portion of my life. Now, I don’t consume them very often but this is an incredibly nutrient rich nut butter that you can’t go wrong with.
Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, omega-3 fatty acids and key B vitamins that many people are deficient in. They also contain chlorophyll to help the body purify the blood stream and detoxify effectively. Hemp seeds are rich in complete protein and GLA, which is a key essential fat for hormone function.
Making a raw seeds butter with coconut oil is fantastic. This has great fats, tastes smooth and creamy and will help balance hormones and burn fat. If you want a little sweet taste you can add in the dates and/or stevia. The cinnamon will help with blood sugar stabilization and add more anti-oxidants to the dish.
