Food of the week - PEANUT BUTTER

  • Peanut butter is nutritious, filling and a great healthy eating option.

  • Peanut butter is full of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.

  •  One serving of peanut butter will give you at least 3mg of the antioxidant Vitamin E. Additionally, you will also get magnesium (about 49g) which is excellent for bone building and muscle recovery and a small but still important amount (0.17 mg) of vitamin B6 that will help boost your immunity. You can also find a small amount of zinc in peanut butter and this too can act as a good immunity booster.

  • For breakfast, add to porridges, toast, and pancakes. For lunch and dinner, add to Quinoa (September’s food of the week), sauces, soups, pastas, sandwiches. For dessert, add to recipes for a healthy filling twist on a sweet treat.

  • All natural peanut butter is a good choice if you want to minimise your intake of unhealthy fats. Natural nut butters usually have peanuts as their main ingredient while others (non-natural) can sometimes contain other artificial ingredients to enhance the taste.
