2 reasons to be even more obsessed with peanut butter
Are you a PB lover? We sure are!
Whether you like it smooth or crunchy, here are 2 reasons why peanut butter is just the best:
1. It’s super nutritious.
Peanut butter is filled with healthy fats, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
Two tablespoons (or one serving) are around 190 calories and will give you 8 grams of protein, 16 grams of fat, 14 percent of vitamin E, and 9 percent of vitamin B6.
2. It’s good for your heart.
Natural peanut butter is high in monounsaturated fat, consumption of which is linked with lowered blood lipid levels and a decreased incidence of heart disease.
What’s more, peanuts also contain antioxidants such as resveratrol and flavonoids, which block the absorption of cholesterol from our diet.
