nutrition note: peanut butter facts

Whether spread on a piece of whole-grain bread or an apple slice, peanut butter makes a satisfying meal or snack in a matter of minutes. Part of the reason it's so satisfying is because each tablespoon of peanut butter contains about 4 grams of protein and 8 grams of fat, most of which is heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat. When buying peanut butter, be sure to choose one labeled "natural" to avoid the trans-fatty acids that come from partially hydrogenated oils, which can increase the LDL, or bad cholesterol, levels in your body. Another bonus¬ónatural peanut butter has much less added sugar and salt.
