    are you eating the healthiest peanut butter? (bud?))

    [​IMG]

    More than just a sandwich spread, peanut butter deserves a spot on your menu! Its healthy fats, fiber and protein may help you stave off afternoon hunger pangs, says a new study. But not all peanut butter is created equal. Here are our tips for finding the best peanut butter on the shelf.

    1. Avoid Oil
    Many PBs are still made with hydrogenated oils, which improve the texture but add trans fat. Some replaced those oils with palm oil-a better choice, but high in unhealthy saturated fat. Buy PB with no added oils and stir before spreading.

    2. Skip Added Sugars
    Some PBs provide 3 to 4 grams of added sugars (about 1 teaspoon per 2-tablespoon serving). Sugar may be listed as: evaporated cane juice, corn syrup solids, high-fructose corn syrup, molasses, honey.

    3. Be Wary of "Natural"
    It doesn't mean the PB is without added sugars and oils. True natural PB has just peanuts and maybe a little salt (our target sodium is 125 mg or less per serving).

    4. Go Full-Fat
    Sugar and starchy fillers replace healthy fats in reduced-fat peanut butters, with negligible calorie savings.

    do they still make those crunchy peanut butters? I remember those when I was a kid.
    My mom used to make us jelly sandwiches. :facepalm: Just jelly. Sugar on white bread. Sugar on sugar.

    If I could eat only one food the rest of my life, it would be peanuts including peanut butter.
