National Peanut Butter Month… I knew I liked November for a reason!
It’s no secret. I have a second husband. Yep Mr. CEO, sit down. You know those monthly deliveries from Amazon, they just so happen to be from my lover. Mr. CEO… meet Mr. Powdered Peanut Butter, I knew you’d get along!
Alright, I’ll stop procrastinating and get to the goods! What’s the deal with peanut butter? A while back I gave you the low down on “Peanut Butter: Friend or Foe” but let’s refresh a bit. Peanut butter is a stellar super food that packs in a ton of nutrition while also leaving you pleasantly satiated and content. Peanuts are a good source (>10% of your daily needs) of vitamin E, magnesium, folate, copper, and phosphorus, while provide 9% of your daily fiber needs!
Peanut butter’s are rampant on the market today, so it’s important to choose wisely when making your selection. I recommend opting for a pure variety, one that simply states the ingredients as, “Peanuts, sea salt”. It’s best if you can find pure peanuts, however most add a tiny bit of salt that is totally okay in my book. If you’re looking for a lower calorie, still nutrient packed option, you can try my favorite version, powdered peanut butter. There are definitely more brands popping up on the market today, but one of my pastime favorites is PB2. (Yes, I love this stuff and you can find it in my Sweet Potato Pie with Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, or savory in that Habanero Pad Thai– the possibilities are endless!).
