What do you think of natural peanut butter as a fat source?
I'm not Erik obviously, but natural peanut butter is generally considered a healthy source fo fat. Ideally we need more monounsaturated fat than saturated fats in our diet and nuts and certain vegetable oils like olive and canola oil are high in monounsaturated fats. Of course, fats are more calorie dense than carbs or protein so portion size is very important.
pb is a fat. I wouldnt eat canola. crappy oil. Olive or coconut and there is naught wrong with saturated fats either.
ohhh... dietary fats.. :doh:
I saw the title of the thread, "Fat", and thought you were talking to me. You rang? :lol:
LOL ladies I know I am a newbie but from your profile pics you are def not fat
I have a very difficult time eating natural pb as it gives me horrible heartburn (and I am not a heartburn person)...is jif regular pb that much worse??
Jiff: it's junky pb..: hydrogenated oils, sugar, mono and diglycerides.
Nooooooooo...don't say this. I LOVE almond butter.
LOL that was for the jiff, not almond butter..
Gosh, you're gonna give me a heart attack. Illen!
Read the ingredient list. There should be nothing in your peanutbutter except peanuts (and salt if you like).
Coconut butter is the best!!
