Peanuts Deliver On More Than Just Great Taste

Contributed by: News Canada

(NC) - Sure, peanuts are delicious. But they're not just pleasing to the taste buds - they're healthy too. Full of essential vitamins and minerals, peanuts are protein powerhouses that add a nutritional punch to your diet. Here are some of the benefits of eating peanuts and peanut butter:

  • Peanuts are cholesterol-free and contain high amounts of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats ("good" fat).

  • Nuts and peanut butter may lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes in women.

  • One serving of peanuts contains 2.4 grams of dietary fibre.

  • A snack of peanuts or peanut butter will leave you feeling full longer than carbohydrate-based snacks. A recent study showed that those who chose peanuts and peanut butter over low-fat snacks (such as rice cakes) felt full for an extended period of time.

As a result, they consumed fewer total

calories throughout the day

The great thing about peanuts is that they can be incorporated into your diet morning, noon or night. There's the reliable peanut-butter-and-jam sandwich for breakfast. At lunch, simply sprinkle a handful of peanuts on a salad for added protein, and for dinner, stir-fry some chicken and vegetables in an exotic peanut sauce. Plus, there's snack time: an ounce of roasted peanuts goes a long way in keeping you feeling full until the next meal. Healthy, versatile and delicious - what more could you ask for from a food?
