Is it just me or could you put peanut butter on everything and be completely satisfied with life 😂
What's your choice?
Processed peanut butter or the real deal!
Here's another example of why labels that may look "good" may not be if you don't look at the ingredient list.
Left: *selected* roasted peanuts, soy bean oil, hydrogenated vegetable oil, sugar, salt, mono diglycerides as a stabilizer
Right: roasted peanuts, salt
The hydrogenated oil found in processed peanut butter (which helps give that smooth creamy texture) is chemically altered oil to help increase the longevity and shelf life of the peanut butter.
👉🏼 This is where the word "holistic" comes in. Eating foods as close to their whole state as possible, not the foods that have been chemically altered 🙏🏼
If you want the heath benefits of peanut butter / any nut butter that tickles your fancy.. drop the butter that's made with hydrogenated oil!
Read the label and choose a peanut butter that contains ONLY peanuts and some salt.
REAL PB TIP: if you don't like the oily mess of real peanut butter, turn it upside down and refrigerate it. The peanut oils and solids will remix and blend much better 👌🏼
