Peanut Butter πŸ₯œ Meal Prep

Natural nuts + grinding = delicious spread that will go on almost ANYTHING.

If you’ve ever thought about growing your own peanuts to satisfy your peanut butter love – then you should probably keep dreaming! Who knew, there are about 540 peanuts in one 12 oz jar!?

So back to the grocery store, make sure to pick up pure peanut butter, the palm oil free, no added salt or sugar kind of peanut butter. Just peanuts. The good stuff. As if the taste wasn’t good enough, take a look at the nutritional values of this stuff; two tablespoons of peanut butter packs in 8 grams of protein, 1.9 grams of fiber, no cholesterol and tones of amazing micronutrients like zinc, niacin, riboflavin and skin loving vitamin E.
