Isn’t peanut butter the best? It’s such a simple snack that you can easily have with you wherever you go. Because of its fat content it helps to fill you up and gives you that extra boost of protein as well.

Is Peanut Butter Healthy For You?


Peanut butter is definitely a nutritious food (so long as you’re eating it in moderation, like most things). It contains fat, protein, and is a great source of B vitamins and magnesium. It’s important to use natural peanut butter that doesn’t have any additives or sugars on the ingredient list, or make your own homemade healthy peanut butter (check out my recipe!)
