Peanut butter is a good source of fats and proteins, I suppose. But, predominantly, lots of fats. Mainly the good ones, though, along with some fatty acids and minerals. It's pretty high in Manganese and Niacin. However, I would not recommend eating solely peanut butter. It doesn't have the right kinds of nutrients to keep your body balanced. But as long as you're eating peanut butter, might I suggest a peanut-butter-and-banana sandwich on whole wheat or some peanut butter on celery with raisins?

Nut butters, including the peanut variety, are very much one of my favorite nutrient rich foods. Providing protein, vitamin E, and heart healthy monounsaturated fats. However, not every nut butter offers the same nutrition profile as many include trans fats (partially hydrogenated oils) and added sugars which certainly detract from the health benefits of the nut alone.

Check out this blog post on peanut butter to ensure you are making the best decision at the grocery store: http://www.smartlivingnetwork.com/eating-healthy/b/whats-in-your-peanut-butter/

And remember, that a serving of 2 tablespoons alone will provide you with around 200 calories so be sure to keep an eye on the amount you are spreading onto your PB&J, or adding to your smoothie or oatmeal.

Enjoy!
