Why You Should Start Your Morning With Natural, Non-GMO Peanut Butter

Why You Should Start Your Morning With Natural, Non-GMO Peanut Butter

Peanuts have long been an American favorite and have evolved to take on many different forms throughout the years. Back in the day, in-shell peanuts were even more common than sunflower seeds on the baseball fields, and now, people are adding scoops of peanut butter to their protein smoothies, pancakes, and just about any other kind of food you can imagine. With these nutritional drinks and dishes being so delicious on their own, it seems the only way to improve them is to use natural, non-GMO peanut butter ― and to consume them in the morning.

If you are a peanut butter lover, you’ve come to the right place because not only is Betsy’s Best peanut butter the best natural peanut butter product on the market, but it is also an amazing way to kick-start your morning. Here are a few reasons why you should start integrating wholesome peanut butter into your breakfast routine!

It’s Packed With Protein And Essential Nutrients

Wholesome peanut butter is known for its ability to fill you up with just a few bites, giving you the protein, essential fatty acids, and vitamins you need to start your day on the right foot. Not only does natural peanut butter make you feel full, but it is the kind of full that makes you feel good and lasts for hours. While this is true of many natural nut butters, organic, GMO-free peanut butter is one of the most hearty ingredients you can consume, providing you with the right kind of sustenance and energy your body needs in the morning. Unlike some other sources of protein, all-natural peanut butter will fill you up without leaving you bloated, cramping, or sick to your stomach.

It’s Versatile And Mobile

As previously mentioned, there are many different ways to eat peanut butter in the morning, and they all provide you with the same protein and nutrients you need in the morning. If you find yourself in a time crunch before leaving for work, pop a piece of bread in the toaster and add a layer of natural, gourmet peanut butter to it on your way out the door. Or, if you like to drink your protein, add a scoop of wholesome peanut butter to your morning shake mix or smoothie, blend it up, and bring it with you.

No matter how you incorporate it into your breakfast, a few scoops of all-natural peanut butter will fill you up and give you the energy you need to start your day out right. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and there’s no excuse to skip breakfast if you have natural peanut butter on hand and know how to make use of its versatility and mobility. Say goodbye to mid-morning hunger pains and say hello to a deliciously healthy breakfast staple!

6 Foods That Go Great With Natural Peanut Butter

In my last blog post, I outlined some of the main reasons why switching to all-natural peanut butter is worth it. Aside from being much healthier than regular peanut butter, it tastes just as good, if not better, and goes great with a variety of different foods. Here are some of my favorite pairings for you to try!

Fruit

Fruit is one of the main kinds of food people pair with peanut butter ― especially apples. Fresh, organic apples sliced up and dipped in Betsy’s Best gourmet peanut butter is one of my favorite after-work snacks, as it provides me with the energy and nutrients I need to take on the next part of my day. Try it with honeycrisp apples, organic bananas, or mangoes!

Oatmeal

If you love oatmeal, you’ll love oatmeal with all-natural, non-GMO peanut butter. I like to add a spoonful to my morning oatmeal, which goes well with raisins, cinnamon, and just about any kind of fresh fruit. There isn’t a tastier way to add a thick, creamy texture to this healthy breakfast dish.

Pretzels

Dipping pretzels can either be healthy or guilty, so skip the cheese dip and choose gourmet peanut butter instead! I love the delicious sweet-salty combination of these two healthy snacks, especially when I have a craving for junk food.

 

 

Toast

Everyone loves peanut butter toast, right? Take your on-the-go breakfast to the next level with Betsy’s Best gourmet peanut butter, which is chock-full of the essential nutrients to kick-start your day. This healthy meal will not only hold you over until your lunch break at work, but will also provide you with the energy you need to get your brain working early in the morning.

Smoothies

Many of us struggle to make our smoothies the right consistency, whether that means adding bananas, yogurt, or peanut butter. Add thickness and essential nutrients to your morning or mid-afternoon smoothie with Betsy’s Best non-GMO peanut butter, which will give you a naturally-sweet nutty cinnamon taste.

Stir Fry

At first, this combination might seem weird. But for those who love the sweet taste peanuts add to their favorite Asian dish, my all-natural peanut butter adds a delicious, guilt-free touch to any stir fry sauce. Try it with lean meats and hearty veggies like sweet peppers, broccoli, carrots, and snow peas ― trust me, you won’t regret it!

6 Healthy Holiday Habits

6 Healthy Holiday Habits

Are you wondering how to stay healthy over the holidays? This season, give yourself the best gift: the gift of good health!

Develop healthy habits that extend well beyond the holidays with these helpful tips to stay fit and healthy!

Six Healthy Holiday Habits To Develop

Habit 1: Picture your ideal healthy holiday

Who would you spend it with? What would you do? This season, try to recreate the image you just described. You’ll gain a healthier satisfaction from this accomplishment than you would from indulging in another piece of fudge or second serving of stuffing.

Habit 2: Keep serving sizes in mind as you fill up your holiday plate

Meat should be roughly 3-4 ounces (the size of a deck of cards), cheese – 1 oz (the size of 4 dice), bread – one slice/or half a cup (half the size of a baseball) and fats – 1 teaspoon (the size of your thumb).

Habit 3: Don’t deprive yourself over the holidays

Eat the treats you really enjoy and skip the ones you can live without. If you look forward to your mom’s Christmas fudge every year, have a piece or two of that – instead of the fruitcake you aren’t crazy about.

Habit 4: Choose a healthy alternative to traditional food and drinks

Low-fat eggnog tastes just as good as the loaded version. An even better choice is spiced cider or wassail. Steamed shrimp is also a delicious alternative for Swedish meatballs. And of course, the veggie tray is a much safer choice compared to the cheese and cracker platter – just watch the dressing!

Habit 5: Fill up on healthy food before a feast

Eat a healthy, balanced meal with plenty of veggies before heading to a holiday party where there will be many temptations. Also try to limit your alcohol consumption, there can be anywhere between 90-400 calories per alcoholic beverage!

Habit 6: Utilize the power of exercise

You can easily burn away those extra calories consumed at a big holiday meal. Suggest a family walk or bike ride around the neighborhood after dinner. You’ll burn calories, get some fresh air and spend time with your family doing something active.

Holiday gifts for good health can come in small festive bags.Bonus tip: Help friends and family stay healthy during the holidays too! Instead of bringing a plate of sweets or a gift basket loaded with high-calorie, sugar-rich treats, bring a few jars of Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters. You can even put together your own gift basket with healthy treats and a few jars of Betsy’s Best. Or bring your hostess a jar! It’s a unique alternative to the usual bottle of wine and sure to make your hostess gift stand out from the rest.

Have yourself a very merry, healthy holiday season!
