Almond Butter Cups (Advanced Plan)

Okay...I will admit it!  Sometimes, people feel sorry for people like me!  I mean after all, (enter sarcasm)...eating healthy is hard.  Sometimes, my family and I have to endure eating things like these creamy, chocolaty, "died and went to heaven" Almond Butter Cups!  (*Again...lots of sarcasm).

You get past that feeling of deprivation, though.  It's just like anything else...you just eventually adapt!  (*And even more...well, you know...). We happen to have adapted very well. So well, that my son now has no problem taking these little cups of "heaven" to school in his lunch box.  (Okay...we didn't adapt at all...we love this food.)

And I have no problem letting him...because I know a little secret!  This almond butter cup has more nutrition than most kid's entire lunch.  His little brain needs things like this to help it run throughout the day.  (This part means exactly what it says.)

Truth be known...I don't think he ever really minded at all!
