The popcultural synonym of breakfast is certainly peanut butter, spread smugly on slices of bread or pancakes in American films. For many years this "American dream" has become more and more rooted in Poland - what do we need to know about it? Let's see.
Why is peanut butter healthy?
There is no debate about tastes! However, it is difficult to find a person who would not like the taste of a good nut paste. However, will the rest of the body be just as happy as the taste buds in this case? Fortunately, yes! Natural peanut butter is healthy and rich in vitamins and other nutrients. It should be remembered, however, that only the best products made from nuts themselves and those that do not contain unnecessary additives (such as salt, preservatives, artificial colors) will have full value. You can not forget that there are different types of "peanut butter", you'll find it HERE! (Http://drpelc.pl/140-pasty-i-masla-orzechowe).
What are the types of peanut butter?
Peanut butter can be prepared from almost all types of nuts. Many of them, however, gained much more popularity than others. Belong to them:
Hazelnut paste (http://drpelc.pl/pasty-i-masla-orzechowe/471-bio-pasta-z-ozrzechow-laskowe-ekologiczna-300g-ekogram-wielonki.html) - contains a lot of magnesium and vitamins E and ideally suited to the daily diet.
Cashew nut paste (http://drpelc.pl/pasty-i-masla-orzechowe/653-bio-pasta-z-ozrzechow-nerkowca-100-ekologiczna-300g-ekogram-wielonki.html) - rich source of m in. magnesium and potassium. This paste is also characterized by a low glycemic index.
Coconut paste (http://drpelc.pl/pasty-i-masla-orzechowe/443-bio-pasta-kokosowa-100-kokos-ekologiczna-250g-ekogram-wielonki.html) - means richness of vitamins and minerals. In addition, you can use it in many other ways, read about it here (https://drpelc.pl/blog/78_pasta-kokosowa).
Peanut paste (http://drpelc.pl/pasty-i-masla-orzechowe/443-bio-pasta-kokosowa-100-kokos-ekologiczna-250g-ekogram-szielonki.html) - a source of vitamin E and Omega acids 9. It will be perfect in sports and vegan diets.
A similar product for toothpastes is also Tahini (http://drpelc.pl/pasty-i-masla-orzechowe/557-bio-tahini-100-pasta-sezamowa-300g-800g-ekogram-zielonki.html), sesame butter. This traditional element of the near- and far-eastern diet is a treasury of calcium, magnesium and vitamins B-1, B-2, B-5 and B-6.
It is worth remembering, however, to choose only natural toothpaste - that is, in the composition of which you will not find unnecessary additives of sugar, salt or oil. Unfortunately - popular products of this type available in our stores - also those intended for children! - they have little to do with real peanut butter.
How to make peanut butter at home?
An alternative to shop nut pastes is of course "home production". Contrary to appearances, it will not require us to spend a lot of time and costs. In practice, it will be necessary for the product itself, ie nuts and a decent blender or other device for mixing (it often turns out that ordinary blenders do not cope with mixing nuts).
When choosing nuts, it is best to choose the ones in the shell and only take care of shelling at home. Prepared in this way, you just need to pour and mix until you get the consistency that suits you - some people prefer to feel pieces of nuts, others prefer 100% smooth pastes. It is worth mentioning that some people subject the nuts to the roasting process before they are blended. If someone likes this option more, then of course you can use it, although you must admit that it negatively affects the nutritional properties of peanut butter.
When is the best way to eat peanut butter?
Good toothpaste is a healthy and filling element of the diet. There are plenty of ways to use it - you can eat it in its pure form "straight from the jar", as a breakfast spread for bread and pancakes or addition to muesli. Other options include the use of peanut butter as an addition to sweet pastries or creams or, for example, spicy poultry dishes.
If we like peanut butter, it's also worth remembering that it works well in a sports diet or ... slimming diet! Nutrients contained in nuts give energy and support muscle regeneration, and numerous unsaturated fatty acids enrich the diet. Of course, you can not overdo it, because eating three times a day a few breadsticks with a thick layer of paste will not be so desirable. That is why it is also worth remembering about other healthy products - you will find them here (http://drpelc.pl/)
Natural peanut butter is an excellent element of a varied diet. It is recommended for practically every person, it is a rich source of many nutrients, a delicious delicacy and addition to really many dishes, so it is worth eating them! Enjoy your meal!
