Is peanut butter even healthy though?
If you buy all-natural peanut butter, it is absolutely healthy! This means you need to make sure that the only ingredient on the label is peanuts! No sugar, salt, or oil. Peanut butter packs quite a few calories, with around 100 per tablespoon, but the fat from peanuts is healthy. As long as you don’t eat it by the spoonful, it’s healthy. And don’t forget it will give you some extra protein as well!
