Peanut butter a versatile cooking ingredient
This food item is found in most pantries all over the country. I have three varieties in mine right now. It is often eaten at breakfast, lunch and at snack time. All ages enjoy this food. Can you guess what it is? The item is peanut butter. It is so popular that approximately 65 million tons of peanut butter will be consumed in the United States this month.
November is National Peanut Butter Lovers Month. Peanut butter not only tastes great, but is a jar full of nutrition. Two tablespoons of peanut butter is considered a serving which contains 190 calories, 8 grams of protein and is rich in both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. The protein helps keep you satisfied and content until your next meal, while the healthy fats can help improve cholesterol levels and lower risk of cardiovascular disease.
Peanut butter also contains a variety of vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, niacin, folate, phosphorus, calcium, iron, vitamin E, and zinc. These vitamins and minerals help to elevate your mood and regulate blood sugar. Peanut butter can be enjoyed daily, but for those watching their weight, it is important to control portion size due to its high caloric value.
