While peanut butter can be described on Urban Dictionary as “a sexual time between two men and a sandwich”, we as fitblrs know that it is actually just a piece of heaven placed on earth…. and consuming an entire jar of it is like a mix of being serenaded by Michael Buble and watching a Ryan Goseling movie. Mouth watering and wonderful.
But not all peanut butter is treated equally. While most labels read the same for calorie content, fat content, and protein, peanut butter that isn’t natural is packed with hydrogenated oils and sugar. They do this so that the oil doesn’t separate (and go to the top of the jar). In addition, natural peanut butter has less sodium and less sugar than your average peanut butter you had as a kid. So when picking out your peanut butter, look for the nutrition labels and search for the ones with the least amount of ingredients, it’s better for you, and (in my opinion) tastes better too :)
same goes for any other nut butters! Especially hazelnut butter, pick more natural (ex. Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter) over more processed (ex. Nutella)
