Healthy Ways To Have Peanut Butter

by Kunal Joshi content writing

Smooth or chunky, store-bought or homemade, one can hardly deny that peanut butter is one glorious food. Next time you buy a jar of peanut butter from the grocery store, do keep in mind that it is a great source of essential nutrients such as dietary fibre, protein, healthy fats, and potassium. However, since it is also high on calories, it is advisable to relish it in moderate portions along with other healthy foods. Here are some nutritious ways to make way for peanut butter India in your mean plan-

a.       Sandwiches: when it comes to a healthy and classic choice of lunch, peanut butter sandwiches are unbeatable. Choose whole grain breads or wraps since a diet that is high in whole grains instead of refined ones can help lower risks of heart disease. Also, instead of slathering traditional high-sugar jam or preserves on your sandwich, it is better to choose a 100% fruit spread, or sliced bananas/apples. 

b.      Snacks: you can use it as a dip for fresh fruits and vegetables, and consume it for snacking. It goes well with celery or baby carrots. As far as fruits are concerned, bananas, apple, and pear slices are good options which are high in cholesterol-lowering soluble fibre. Ensure that you limit your calorie intake by using a single-serving container of peanut butter. You can also measure the required amount and put the jar away.

c.      
In recipes: a Thai-inspired stir fry can be enlivened up with a small amount of best peanut butter in India! You can also replace roasted peanuts with peanut butter in soup. What’s more, adding it in baked goods can be a great idea as it cuts down on the amount of refined sugar.

d.      Smoothies and shakes: your favourite smoothie or shake will taste a lot more lip-smacking with peanut butter. If you want a burst of high quality protein and calcium, simply blend it with frozen bananas, low-fat milk and yogurt. You can also add more fruits for a higher dose of fibre and nutrients, as well as some flax for some essential omega 3 fatty acids. High protein peanut butter can hardly taste any better!
