GO-TO SUGGESTIONS FOR NUTRITION MONTH
Not only is it National Nutrition Month, it is also National Peanut Month. Peanuts and peanut butter are a go-to suggestion of Frances’. Peanut butter is a superfood offering protein, fiber, and heart-healthy fats in every bite. It is tasty and versatile, making a good choice for any meal or snack. With 30 vitamins and minerals, peanut butter is a nutrient-dense food which provides energy to power your healthy lifestyle. Peanut butter is easy to use as a tasty protein boost in recipes like, PB Cocoa Chia Pudding, which is perfect for meal prep. It is also great for smoothies, or as a peanut-based sauce for recipes like Chicken Pad Thai, or a spread on whole grain bread or fruit for an easy breakfast or snack.
