5 Health Benefits of Peanut Butter

I love peanut butter. I think that it’s my universal condiment. You can eat it with fruit, on toast or pancakes, and even to make it into a sauce. Not only is it delicious, especially if you get the all-natural, unprocessed type, it’s also great for you! I recommend using it as a fruit topping when you’re craving something sweet for a healthy dessert. Cut an Apple into thin slices, spread some peanut butter over it, and make yourself the tastiest dessert. 

Here are 5 health benefits of Peanut Butter: 

  1. Peanut Butter is chalk full of protein as well as potassium — which lowers the risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease.
  2. It gets rid of hunger and keeps your energy high with healthy fats!

    Thanks for visiting my blog – I’m so please as it has led me to your fabulous ‘foody’ site! I love it!! I also love peanut butter and it has been an absolute staple snack for me if I get any days where I’m tempted by the carbs.. just a spoonful of peanut butter takes away any thought of relenting.. I love this idea with the apples – I’m definitely going to try it! x
