Peanut butter is a delicious and nutritious snack that provides necessary fats and proteins, flavour, fibre, and small amounts of sugar to keep you feeling full and energized. Spread it on crackers, pitas, fruit or granola bars.
It is important, however, to understand the difference between all-natural peanut butter (made solely from peanuts) and peanut butter produced by the majority of brands that are, according to Hughes, “servings of sugar masquerading as peanut butter.” The extra sweeteners and ingredients included are “a sugar spike waiting to happen that won’t help fuel your activities.” Choose a brand that lists one ingredient: Peanuts.
