42 Clean Eating Peanut Butter Recipes

42 Clean Eating Peanut Butter Recipes!

Did you know that November is National Peanut Butter Lovers’ month?  This is not to be confused with National Peanut Butter month, which is in March.  No, peanut butter lovers, this month is for YOU!  Truth is, peanut butter doesn’t just taste like heaven, it also packs a punch in the health department.

A two tablespoon serving has 7 grams of protein and 2 g of dietary fiber to keep you feeling full longer.  One serving has 3 mg of the antioxidant vitamin E, 49 mg of bone-building magnesium, 208 mg of muscle-friendly potassium, and 0.17 mg of immunity-boosting vitamin B6 (Prevention Magazine).  Eating peanut butter can also decrease your risk of heart disease and diabetes, while also being full of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.

So what’s the best peanut butter?  Simple, buy the peanut butter with one ingredient: peanuts – and choose organic if you can (it reduces your exposure to chemicals used on the crops).  One ingredient peanut butter will make you wonder why you ever wasted your money on anything else, it’s delicious and nutritous!  So now, how should you use said peanut butter….I have some sweet and savory ideas for meals throughout the day:
