Why is Almond Butter so expensive?

For what reason is almond butter so costly?

California produces 80% of the world's almonds. They represent 11 billion dollars in benefit statewide. Almonds require a great deal of water to deliver. "The measure of water expected to deliver the state's yield [almonds] would cover the measure of water 60 percent of California's inhabitants are prescribed to utilize every year," says ABC News.

Without a doubt, almonds are not the most noticeably bad guilty parties with regards to sucking California's water assets dry. It takes in excess of a gallon of water to grow a solitary almond, and it might take 220 gallons of water to deliver a substantial avocado… A stick of spread requires in excess of 500 gallons of water to make.
All things considered, almonds take up 10% of California's all out supply.

Ok. So now what? A call to blacklist almonds?

If you feel like making some practical changes, here are a couple of humble proposals that I'm doing. I hope it helps you.

  • Purchase privately developed almond butter. I try to buy locally sourced butter. 
  • Make your own
  • Live simply, appreciate beauty, and share joy.

Neck pain during crunches

Neck pain during crunches is incredibly common
The genuine issue? You're doing crunches all wrong. Most people perform a crunch from the upper body instead of the ab area, which works your neck muscles, not your abs.  
Picture your spine. It can twist back, forward, and around, however the structure stays connected together in one line. If performed properly, crunches will keep your spine in line from lower back to head.  Be that as it may, in the event that you let the head slack, you're leaving your neck powerless against a strain. Best case, this slight pressure results in the gentle distress that'll shield you from producing enough reps to ever really observe abs in the mirror. But with enough pressure, this improper form can actually lead to a bulging disc, which comes with serious pain, numbness, and muscle weakness. No bueno!
Visualize holding a apple between your chin and your chest. If you don't squeeze, you'll drop it, but too much pressure will squish the fruit, making bruises all over the apple (If visualizing just isn't working, try folding up a towel and squeezing it between your chin and your chest.) So, retract your chin. Remember the elbows and abs are not connected. The abs have no idea what your elbows are doing so it's ok if your elbows aren't opened wide. But, your neck is connected to your spine so no pushing your head forward with your hands. 
I hope this helps you the next time you hit the mat for some ab work. 

In health,
