Disclaimer: I have a slighttt obsession with peanut butter. Seriously, I love it. It makes me so happy. So it is only appropriate that I share with you my absolute favourite snack that I had today… Apples and peanut butter! Ohhhh how I love that sweet and salty goodness 😀
Peanut butter is a great snack because it has lots of protein and will keep you full until your next meal. It also contains lots of healthy (and unsaturated) fats, similar to those found in avocados and olive oil. The above factors make peanut butter a great skinny snack, because it keeps you full longer and helps stop you from giving in to those nasty junk food cravings!
Another super important thing… Buy REAL peanut butter. What is real peanut butter? Well, the only ingredients on the jar should be peanuts and salt. The majority of peanut butters on the shelf have the first ingredient as being icing power. Icing powder = cake icing = frosting for breakfast = NO. It’s gross, just don’t do it. Buy the real and delicious peanut butter that will better your health instead of yucky sugar disguised as a nutritious product. Keep an eye out for peanut butter labeled “natural” when you are shopping, as it will most likely be the real stuff! But check the ingredient list just to be safe. 🙂
