craving balance right now. quick blog about PEANUT BUTTER. I have recently purchased my first EVER jar of peanut butter. now, being the extreme label reader and bargain hunter that I am, I searched 3 stores before landing on Naturally More Peanut Butter. It has flax seeds and tons of protein and fiber (i am also a recent fiber freak too) AND half the fat! no tras fat (which i found out was invented by Crisco to lengthen shelf life but is so terrible for you that state laws are beginning to ban it in all food production from mcdonalds to gourmet restaurants. this has taken effect in New York and California.) the consistency is a little different, but it is better for you than almond butter and tahini. While normal peanut butter is almost exclusively monounsaturated fat, Naturally More contains omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids.
my first jar of peanut butter. quite satisfied.... the joys of growing up.
