Start Your Day With Peanut Butter

PeanutButter

If you’re looking for a better way to start the day, try some peanut butter. This nutrient-dense food is a smart option for breakfast because it’s filling and tastes great. Two tablespoons of smooth-style peanut butter offers 8 grams of plant-based protein and more than 30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients. “Making time for breakfast and choosing a meal that has fiber, protein and good fats can play a role in maintaining a healthy diet,” said Registered Dietitian Sherry Coleman Collins. “Research shows that a balanced breakfast including fruit, whole grains and protein such as peanut butter gives you the fuel and nutrients needed to stave off hunger until lunchtime.”
