I Like My Women Like My Peanut Butter, Smooth and Natural
I have a thing for peanut butter complexioned women with smooth buttery brown skin, Sanaa Lathan, Kerry Washington, Aisha Tyler, Zoey Saldana, Tia and Tamera Mowry you get the picture ( Side Note:I convinced my 6th grade classmates I was dating Tia Mowry, obviously they weren’t too bright). Smooth peanut buttery skin is as nice to look at as natural peanut butter is to eat. Natural peanut butter was a regular part of my diet in my first year of weight loss. Last night I was craving some peanut butter so I stopped by the grocery store, picked up a jar, and decided to write an article on some of its benefits.
All-Natural Peanut Butter is a great source of protein and healthy fats. Even though it is high in calories, if eaten in proper portions it can be part of a healthy and balanced diet. Natural peanut butter is healthier than the refined peanut butter most of us are used to be buying. Unrefined peanut butter has all of the the natural benefits without the additives. Below are a list of the benefits of peanut butter.
- Lowers Bad Cholesterol (LDL)
- Increases Good Cholesterol (HDL)
- Contains high amounts of dietary fiber to help control cholesterol and blood sugar
- Great source of protein
- Contains Vitamin E and B3
- Contains beneficial minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium, copper and calcium.
Vitamin E can significantly reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Vitamin B3 aids in the recovery of cell DNA damage and in improving sexual bodily functions by assuring the proper secretion of sexual hormones. Basically peanut butter helps you have better sex. Well that’s good to know, its healthy and an aphrodisiac (not like that matters in my case). Next time you are in the grocery store make sure to pick up a jar of natural peanut butter and a celery stalk for a great midday or late night snack.
