Grilled Almond Butter and Pear Sandwich
Did you know that raw nuts boost your metabolism twice as much as roasted nuts? It’s true. Roasting kills nutrients in the nuts, changes their fat molecules, and makes them tougher for your body to metabolize — and that means your body gets the chance to turn them into fat.
Raw nuts and seeds are not only scrumptious (and don’t forget amazing raw almond butter or cashew butter), they’re also fantastic fat-burning fuel.

- Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spread the butter or coconut oil on one side of the bread. Place it, butter side down, in the skillet. Grill until golden brown.
