This pairing of aged gouda and our Pure Plant Raw Almond Butter Bar is decadent yet excellent for the body. The buttery flavor of the almonds and the butterscotch of the lucuma fruit pairs beautifully with the sharp, nuttiness of the aged gouda which carries its own butterscotch notes. Our Pure Plant collaborator, pioneering physician, scientist, TED speaker, and author of the groundbreaking New York Times best seller: Eat to Beat Disease, Dr. Li, recommends eating hard cheeses like Gouda. According to Dr. Li, “Hard cheeses are a source of vitamin K2, which has been shown to support cardiovascular function and has been shown to have antiangiogenic properties, which slow the formation of blood vessels needed for tumor growth! On another note, pure cacao has been shown by researchers to improve blood flow for better cardiovascular health.” We love knowing this luxurious treat does the body good.
