Hellllo Healthy People!!!
Happy Winesday. Hope you are currently sipping on some deep red and getting your antioxidants! How’s the challenge of the week going? Have you worked out with your mom, someone who will be a future mom or a lady in your life?? Jump on it! Did you know that it is also women’s health week (what a coincidence….)
Anyways tonight’s post is about one of my all time favorite things.
It is soooo good on everything including a spoon.
Me when I’ve had too much but want more…
But what’s so great about peanut butter…and I’m most definitely referring to the natural stuff (not “natural” JIF) but rather the stuff that says Ingredients: Peanuts. Or maybe even some salt. But that is it!!!…is all the different ways to use it (that are healthy.)
Peanut butter is a great way to get protein (nuts in general are ways that vegans & vegetarians can get the protein they need!)
Where to add peanut butter???
1.) On a spoon, naturally.
2.) Slice of bread.
3.) Apple Slices!
4.) Celery Sticks (with raisins = ants on a log, perfect for the kiddos!)
5.) Add it to your spicy stir fry…it sweetens it up!
6.) Whole wheat crackers and a glass of almond milk…
7.) On pancakes!!! and belgian waffles!
8.) As a marinade with cayenne pepper and a little bit of water!
9.) on a banana…probably one of my favorite snacks!!!
10.) Add to smoothies!!
11.) Inside cookies??? Have you tried my Earth Cookie Recipe?
12.) SOOO good as a dessert, make little balls of peanut butter and dip in powder sugar or chocolate!
13.) spread on a piece of dark chocolate!
14.) Swirled into your morning oatmeal? Yum.
15.) If all else fails…dip your clean finger and lick away!
If you don’t like peanut butter or are interested in alternatives…try almond or cashew. They all have a little different taste so definitely experiment!
So get creative!! Peanut butter in moderation is not only good for you it’s yummy!
Plus…kids love it!
Happy Eating and Exercising,
