The Health Moment: the Benefits of Nuts (4 of 4)

And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through (separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God); and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete (and found) blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah). I Thessalonians 5:23 (Amplified Bible)

We’ve come to the end of our nut series and I am finishing the benefits of nuts with a blast. Today we’re talking about a smoother, creamier nut: Peanut Butter!!! It’s the buttery nut that goes well with crackers, apples, celery and creates one of America’s guilty pleasures: the peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Besides being good on foods, did you also know it’s good for you? Forget what you’ve heard it about it being fattening, when consumed in moderation, peanut butter is actually quite beneficial.

According to Lydia Stephens, writer for eHow, Harvard Medical School suggested that the poly- and monounsaturated fats in peanut butter lowers your risk of developing heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. It also burns belly fat thanks to the energy it produces which in turn allows you to lose weight. Lastly, it’s high in potassium and fiber.

So enjoy a spoonful of peanut butter today and get ready to burn, burn, burn and build a more healthier you!
