Did you know Peanut Butter Lovers Holiday is coming up? Yep, it’s March first.
Okay, it may not be up there with Valentine’s Day or St. Patrick’s...but, hey, who doesn’t like peanut butter? Not only is it delicious, but it’s also pretty good for you it turns out.
Here are four reasons I’ve found for loving peanut butter. Okay, reason number four trumps all of them, but don’t skip ahead...
Reason #1—Fighting bad cholesterol. Turns out peanut butter has a lot of fiber and fiber is what helps you fight off bad cholesterol, which is good for your heart. Good heart means you’re able to do plenty of chores around the house...sorry, I didn’t say it was all good news.
Reason #2—Good for your muscles. Why? Because of the protein. We need it to build muscle and keep the body strong. Anything with protein can also give you an energy boost and jumpstarts brain activity (boy, I need that).
Reason #3—Keeps your colon healthy and happy—PB has resveratrol, which helps your body deal with bacteria and bad micro-organisms in your colon. That’s a good thing, especially as you get older.
Reason #4—A match made in heaven, CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER. Need I say more? I didn’t think so.
Tell me what you think about these and if you think we need a peanut butter dessert at the Pink House. Purely, for the health benefits, mind you... LOL
