Why we love it #1: IT'S DELICIOUS.
Need a healthy dessert option? Some of us choose to take a spoon to the jar, but there are other ways to use PB as an ingredient for a healthy dessert. PB & J oatmeal, apples/bananas and peanut butter, PB cookies, etc., the options are endless.
Why we love it #2: high in protein.
According to Helen Sanders of Health Ambition, a healthy dosage of peanut butter is 2 tablespoons.
2 tablespoons is about 10 grams of protein!
With it’s rich, creamy texture, high protein content and healthy fats, when you eat peanut butter you automatically feel fuller for longer.
Why we love it #3: good for your heart.
Harvard Medical School did a study and found that peanut butter is a helping hand for your ticker! Numerous studies have shown that people who eat a lot of nuts (in the form of butter or not) are less likely to develop heart disease or type 2 diabetes than those who don’t.
