Super Cashew Butter for Dogs

Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Preparations for Christmas are in progress, although this year the Christmas mood is a bit different, more reflective with a hint of sadness ... Our pets do not feel any changes, however, and we constantly strive to take care of their health and well-being.

Tasty and nutritious seed and nut butter can be made from almonds, cashews, hemp hearts, chia, and more. Your dog will love them as much as you do!

Once upon a time, there was only peanut butter. Nowadays, you can choose from a range of delicious and nutritious seed and nut butter – and share this deliciousness with your dog as well as your human family!

Almond butter

Almonds are packed full of nutrients. They contain the entire vitamin E family, tocopherols, and tocotrienols. Alpha-tocopherol is one of the keys to healthy skin and coat. Almonds are also an excellent source of B vitamins, bioflavonoids, copper, magnesium (which supports the nervous system), manganese, zinc, and even Omega 3. Almond butter is heart-healthy too.

Cashew butter

I cannot pass a bowl of buttery cashews, and in moderation, your dogs can enjoy them too, either whole or in the form of cashew butter. The cashew tree is native to the coastal areas of Brazil, and way back in the 16th century, Portuguese explorers introduced the trees to India and Africa. Cashews’ heart-healthy monounsaturated fat content is like that found in olive oil, and because of their high level of oleic acid, they keep longer than other nuts.  Cashews are another nut that contains lots of antioxidants, along with copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc.

Peanut butter

Interestingly enough, peanuts are not really nuts at all. They belong to the legume family and are related to beans, lentils, and even soy. Peanuts are rich in protein and a variety of other nutrients, including biotin, copper, vitamin E, folate, manganese, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, and thiamin. They contain valuable plant compounds too, including a polyphenol called p-coumaric acid, and resveratrol, which supports heart health and is often part of a cancer-fighting diet.

 

SNACK FOR DOG prepared an excellent cashew butter, with the addition of coconut oil, ginger, cinnamon, honey, and amazing turmeric with an irreplaceable, positive effect on the body of our pets. 1/2 teaspoon lick is a great treat for any dog with beneficial anti-cancer properties.

Dogs cannot eat macadamia nuts, pecan nuts, walnuts, pine nuts.

 

When an 85-pound mammal licks your tears away and then tries to sit on your lap, it’s hard to feel sad.
