(Editor's note: Writer Mary MacVean tried out trainer Jackie Warner's diet and exercise plan from her new book “10 Pounds in 10 Days.” Here's her experience. Read about her previous days: Day 1 , Day 2 .) Day 3 Even though I didn't get to breakfast until a little late, my stomach was shrieking in outraged emptiness by the time lunch rolled around. And when I finished the allotted sandwich, I was immediately thinking, “Is that all?” I do have my afternoon snack - 1 tablespoon of almond butter and eight celery sticks (4 inches each)

Nut butters -- peanut, almond, cashew, etc. -- are terribly simple to make. Grind nuts until they release their oils and are reduced to a smooth paste. And voila! You've got nut butter. All you need are nuts and a little flavoring or seasoning. You can add some sugar if you want to sweeten, or perhaps a touch of honey or maple syrup, but that's it. Don't worry about adding oil -- nuts naturally have a high oil content, and will release enough oil for the butter themselves with enough time and patience.

The peanut butter recall that started this past weekend with a salmonella-linked product sold at Trader Joe's has now been expanded to dozens of peanut, cashew and almond butters, according to producer Sunland Inc. The New Mexico-based company manufactured and packaged the Trader Joe's Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter that regulators have since connected to 29 salmonella illnesses in 18 states, including California. Sunland this week said its voluntary recall now also includes 76 varieties of almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter, tahini and roasted blanched peanut products.

"I am incredible," Ezra Miller told a waitress assuredly. The server didn't bat an eyelash, jotting down the actor's order before retreating back into the kitchen. At Cafe Gratitude, an organic vegan restaurant in Hollywood, such proclamations are commonplace. In fact, they're required if you want to order food or drink, which all have mantra-like, inspirational monikers. Despite his hippie attire - drawstring pajama bottoms combined with a formal blazer that had strings of his long hair stuck to it - Miller, 19, found the trendy eatery to be ridiculous.

Question: I have a lot of blanched almonds that I purchased at a good price recently. Please tell me how to make almond butter. Can I use it like peanut butter? Answer: Yes, almond butter can be used like peanut butter. Popular in cookies and as a sandwich spread, it is also adaptable for baked goods, candy, ice cream, granola bars and yogurt. The commercial almond butters come in smooth and crunchy forms with new flavor variations of honey-cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla and toasted coconut.

Dinner time is usually a long time away for children who arrive home from school as early as 3 p.m. But a made-ahead treat that children heat in the microwave can ensure that they are eating right, even when you're away. Most of today's health-conscious parents will want to provide healthy snacks for their after-school munchers but may find that today's children look cautiously at concoctions of celery, peanut butter and the like.

(Editor's note: Writer Mary MacVean tried out trainer Jackie Warner 's diet plan from her new book “10 Pounds in 10 Days.” Here's her experience. Read the previous days , too.) Day 6 I've been really surprised by the fact that I've not been hungry much. I will admit my measuring has been a little heavy-handed - but we're talking about over-measuring broccoli, for goodness' sake. Anyway, I dutifully ate my lunchtime sandwich today. And when I finished it … I was really hungry.
