About the Recipe

This month at Healthoholics we are focussed on Health Freedom!

If you haven’t seen it yet, we encourage you to check out our latest blog posts on Why The History of NHP (Natural Health Product) Regulations Matter TODAY and Do You Risk Losing Access To Natural Health Products? for more info!

Just like last week’s Kale & Tuna Salad with Parsley Vinaigrette, this week’s recipe was inspired by the NHPPA, a federal non-profit who are doing important work to protect the health freedom of all Canadians.

NHPPA is currently running a t-shirt fundraising campaign to directly support their campaign initiative to get their President, constitutional lawyer Shawn Buckley, to the Standing Committee on Health. We were inspired, because one of the t-shirts in their “Ban Series” is all about peanut butter! More on the recipe below.


We hope you’ll also consider buying a t-shirt and supporting NHPPA’s fundraising efforts: https://www.teechip.com/ban-peanut-butter

The front of the t-shirt reads:
Ban Peanut Butter

The back of the t-shirt reads:
We know that Canadians, mostly children, die every year from nut allergies by eating things such as peanut butter. However, peanut butter is not dangerous enough for us to support spending hundreds of millions of dollars to set up a separate directorate to protect us. As wasteful as a Health Canada Peanut Butter Directorate would be, ironically it could save the odd life. Unfortunately, my fear is that the NHP Directorate is actually going to cost lives.
