At last! The Reasonable SIBO e-book is here and ready for immediate download.
You will heal. I will help.
You know what I rarely do on this blog anymore? Write anything personal. But today I’m going to tell you about the book deal that almost was because it’s 100% relevant.
Most years in January I run a 21-day gut healing group program (paid). This year, I’m doing a free 21-day gut healing inspiration journey instead.
Yes, that’s right. It’s free.

It’s been quite some time since I released The Gutsy Girl’s Bible: an approach to healing the gut, 3.0 (the final version) which is ample time for me to be able to put together The Gutsy Girl’s Bible 3.0 FAQ…..because I am asked questions weekly around the e-book.
I have received many questions about A Gutsy Girl’s Nut Butter Recipes: The A Loving Spoon nut butter original recipes since I released it, so today I put together my nut butter e-book FAQs.

It was, and if I were in almost any other season of life, I would likely still be running the company. But there were many reasons I chose to say goodbye, and I wrote about it via Goodbye, A Loving Spoon nut butters. (p.s. if you’re thinking of becoming a food entrepreneur, be sure to read the post because you’ll learn a lot about what happens and what it takes to grow and take the next step.)
I decided to turn the recipes into an e-book because I know, without a doubt, that I will never desire to re-start the business. There are a plethora of reasons for this, but my dreams no longer include seeing a jar of nut butter on every Whole Foods shelf. That said, it seemed like a waste to just have them sit there with no one (but us) able to enjoy their delicious flavor. As I stated in the e-book,
In the end, I decided that their best interest was to share them with as many people as possible so that their gifts of bare ingredients, bold flavor, and unprocessed guilt could be enjoyed forever.
In today’s world where e-books are sold online for much cheaper, $10 might seem like a lot to pay for nut butter recipes. I asked several people their opinion on e-book price point. Some said to go super low for volume, and others said, “Well, I would never give these recipes in the first place because you can’t put a price on them.” I just kind of landed on $10 without much reason, but what I can tell you is that I chose to not go super low because these aren’t just any nut butter recipes. They are the recipes that an entire business was built on, a business that I poured every last ounce of my being into – financially and emotionally.
Yes, of course, you can place into Google search something like, “How to Make Peanut Butter,” and you will find hundreds of recipes for free. (I’m serious. Just click that link and you’ll see.)
But the difference?
(This is the short version of what happens, anyways.)
The Honey Vanilla Bourbon Peanut Butter came back to me. I knew with the very first bite that this was not my product. And like other food-tasting challenges, we then had several other people taste the original Honey Vanilla Bourbon Peanut Butter and the new Honey Vanilla Bourbon Peanut Butter. Every single person knew immediately which was not mine, and furthermore, those who had never had the original version knew immediately that they liked that original best.
So what happened?
It all comes down to ingredients. Once you make it to a co-packer, they typically use their own ingredients (to cut down on cost), unless you’re really lucky and can send in your own ingredients. They understand that there is xyz in a product, but they don’t use the same xyz as the initial product used.
For the Honey Vanilla Bourbon Peanut Butter, it all comes down to the vanilla.”
Once you checkout, you will immediately be sent a link to download the e-book. You can save the PDF on your desktop. You can also download it from you iPad or iPhone, and then open it up in iBooks to have the recipes right next to you as you make them.
Um, no! I am not a graphic designer by any means. I used to spend a lot of time putting together my own e-books, but then I realized that was a horrible use of my time and I found a designer to work with who produces all of them now. I simply provide all the material and content and images, and then the design and layout are handed off to him.
There are 7, and they include the following:
That’s the nature of natural nut butters. Go to any store and check out the natural nut butters. You will see oil separation. Just stir (or store the jar upside down).
No. We did all of this for the products that were launched nationwide (the peanut butters), and they all were consistent with 80-ish calories, 7-ish grams of fat, and 3-ish grams of carbs per tablespoon.
However, in this house we could ingredients (and quality of those ingredients) vs. macro nutrients. I believe in its power.
Of course! All you have to do is purchase the e-book, and when the link is sent to your Inbox, forward it on. Please only enjoy one copy per household.
On a more literal note, though, you do not need to store these in the fridge. If you enjoy them from the fridge, you can store them there, but in your pantry is perfectly fine. Conservatively, they will last 3 months (but my chemist and co-packer once told me they are fine up to 6 months).
As I was nibbling on the Java Almond Chip last night, I couldn’t help but think of how grateful I am that I put my whole heart into developing these recipes. There is just nothing else like these, and I am proud of what I created. Most importantly, I am excited to share them with the world!
Thank you for your support!
A Gutsy Girl’s Nut Butter Recipes: The A Loving Spoon nut butter original recipes will continue to support my family for as long as we live. And I promise that almost every single last penny goes back to these babies we adore:)
