Peanut Butter

If you’re looking for a heart-healthy spread for your morning toast, bagel, or muffin, look no further. This versatile nut butter is rich in heart-smart mono and polyunsaturated fats as well as vitamin E. Just beware, some “all natural” varieties sneak in saturated fat-containing palm oil for texture so be sure to read the label and stick with brands crafted from 100% peanuts. As for those with added omega-3s like EPA and DHA? Save your money and spend it on fish instead. A 2-tablespoon serving of omega-3 enhanced peanut butter only provides about 32 milligrams of omega-3s, a measly 3% of the amount you’d get from a 3-ounce serving of salmon. Find which spreads won our vote in our Taste Test of Peanut Butters.
