Yes, Tahini and all the other nut butters are quite expensive. Non-organic almonds seem to be the cheapest, and using the food processor to make almond butter works pretty well. I have to say when I first started low-carb I ate a lot more then I do now. Not a conscious effort on my part, I'm just not that hungry any more as I was in the early months of it. That fact has reduced my food bill quite a bit. I used to eat 4-eggs omeletts routinely, also several ounces of nuts, large cuts of meat (12 oz.) and now my body seems to have finally understood that there is always more where that came from and the quality is good enough to where all essential nutrients are present.
Sorry, this is really a separate topic. But it does affect how long the nuts and nut butters I buy will last.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
