Peanut Butter Loving

24 Jan

Happy Thursday!

Today is National Peanut Butter Day. We have recently become a little bit obsessed with nut butters. Most people think that peanut butter is unhealthy. This is true if you’re thinking of the Jiff peanut butter we all ate as kids. We’re talking about natural peanut butter which is made without any additional hydrogen oils and is just simply ground roasted peanuts. Although high in calories, if eaten in moderation it can be beneficial because it is high in vitamin E, a good source of unsaturated fat, and a healthy high protein food. We love adding a tablespoon to oatmeal, spread onto a piece of toast, paired with an apple, or mixed into a smoothie. Below are a few of our favorite kinds:

Next time you’re at the grocery store make sure you check out the peanut butter aisle! You definitely won’t be disappointed with any of these options!
