Peanut Butter – What to Look For

healthy-peanut-butterHave you compared the ingredients in what you’ve been eating lately? The simpler and more understandable your ingredients are, the better it is as an option.

When it comes to peanut butter, I recommend PB2. It tastes good and is simply better for you! Take a look at the ingredients of some of the popular peanut butters. Notice how PB2 only has 3 simple ingredients and also notice how a low-fat version of Skippy has way more junk than the regular version.

Don’t be fooled by what’s on the front of these packages… always be sure to look at the ingredients. Your body deserves to have real food, don’t you think?
