Say what? It’s National Peanut Butter Day?!

January 24, 2012

And this is why I love America, folks.

Yes, today, January 24th 2012, is national peanut butter day. How are you going to celebrate? What is your favorite way to eat PB?…are you a chunky or smooth person? Do you have a favorite brand? What about homemade?

I don’t eat a lot of peanut butter. I’m a lover of the creamy, nutty paste, but I’m trying to stay away from peanuts as I’m trying to go Paleo.

A few health benefits from natural peanut butter are:  high in potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc and iron. Rich in niacin, vit E and K, folate and riboflavin. It’s a good source of protein and fiber, but it is also a high-caloric food, so watch your serving sizes. It’s also a good source of fat.

Go enjoy some peanut butter..and make sure to tell me how YOU celebrated National Peanut Butter Day!

    Three PB&J’s down today on my fave bread from the local bakery. Almond butter is just as good if not better especially if you get the cinnamon kind!
