January 24th is celebrated as National Peanut Butter Day!
Whether your favorite is smooth or creamy, peanut butter is a good source of protein and heart healthy unsaturated fats (which may help lower the risk of heart disease). While high in calories, if you stick to the serving size of 2 tablespoons you’ll consume just 200 calories and a generous 8 grams of protein.
