Natural is always better...
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.
Peanut Butter or Kerry Washington? They are both mmm mmm good!
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.
Disclaimer: I am a fan of women of all complexions and ethnicities. So don’t be a Sensitive Sally and get all wound up.

I have long tried to avoid the use of dietary supplements in my diet plan. I wanted to accomplish my weight loss goals with as little assistance as possible. However, I have gotten to the point where I am a little bored and I want to challenege myself and see increased gains. One of the things I worried about when I started my weight lifting routine was getting too bulky. I have started to see increased bulk due to my diet and my lifting routine. Whey protein along with a low calorie diet helps to ensure that I keep a lean, tight figure and not turn into the hulk. This past weekend I bought Whey Protein Isolate from Species Evolutionary Nutrition. I plan to start using it consistently as of today. Here are some quick facts on whey protein.
Unfortunately this is not free base cocaine, its just whey protein.
What Is It?
Whey protein is a by-product of cheese production. It is a liquid material mixture of globular proteins isolated that is the best source of protein.
- Encourages lean muscle mass.
- It is useful for weight loss, specifically fat loss, as it is low in calories and high in protein
- It may help prevent cancer
- Can help improve cognitive performance under stress
Isolyze Whey Protein Isolate by Species Evolutionary Nutrition. No Sugar. No Lactose. No Fat.
Side Effects of Whey Protein
- Allergic reactions for people who are lactose intolerant (There are lactose free whey products, I bought one because I am lactose intolerant)
- There are also some concernes about long term excess protein intake and the damage it may cause to ones liver, kidney and its role in the onset of osteoparosis
I’ll be using whey protein and report back on my findings. I hope to come away impressed.
