Get More Out Of Your Snacks With This Protein Peanut Butter (Recipe)
Is there anything better than peanut butter? Aside from being a common childhood favorite, peanut butter makes a great snack option for your weight loss and fitness goals! Peanut butter contains protein, which is good for the building and maintenance of lean muscle, as well as fiber and healthy fats which will fill you up without filling you out! But the nutritional benefits don't end there! Peanut butter contains a large amount of potassium which is good for your metabolism, your muscle strength, your heart, kidneys, and nervous system. It also has magnesium, vitamin E and a host of antioxidants! Inspired by the BodyRock Meal Plan, this homemade peanut butter recipe removes all the added salt and sugar, while bumping up the protein content with a little protein powder! Isn't it time you took control of what's going in your food? Whip up a batch and tell us what you think! Have a look: https://youtu.be/M-ihPtmXobY Ingredients:
