Everyone should be eating fresh veggies and fruit daily but few people do. Peanut butter can be the perfect tool to change this. Take your PB to the next level (nutritionally speaking) with this super quick and easy recipe!
Here’s a few of our favorite peanut butter vehicle options..
- pear slices
- celery sticks
- kohlrabi slices
- broccoli florets
- bell peppers.. Don’t knock it ’til you try it!
Be sure to check out the ingredients and make sure your peanut butter only has “peanuts” and salt (preferably just peanuts). Most popular brands have sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and hydrogenated oil. When these are added, peanut butter goes from being a whole, plant-based food to a highly processed food.
There are a few good options available where you can avoid all the crazy ingredients. Smuckers natural peanut butter contains just peanuts and a tad bit of salt. Kroger brand also has a natural peanut butter with only peanuts and salt. Most stores also have a machine where you can grind your own peanut butter.
While peanut butter is good on it’s own, the recipe below really cranks up the nutritional value. Always having a batch of this prepared will make it easy to add flax and chia seeds to your routine.
