Peanut Butter: Get Your Facts (and Fats) Straight

I would have held off posting my peanut butter piece until today had I realized March 1 was National Peanut Butter Lovers Day. (Don’t believe me? Click here for more info.) However, there’s been such a huge response—everyone loves peanut butter!—that I’m bringing it to your attention in case you missed it the first time around.  If you did already read it, you might peruse the comments and responses to clarify any peanut butter questions you have. Or ask your own!

Remember: Don’t Fear the Fat. Get your peanut butter or guacamole on, guilt free. (Probably not together, though.) And, for more general info on the basics of a healthy diet, check out my piece on why the devil’s in the details when it comes to nutrition.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for me to toast a piece of whole wheat bread and slather it with rich, creamy, satisfying, yummy peanut butter.

I am not making that up.
