Healthy Peanut Butter

Healthy Peanut Butter

Better Manage Type 2 Diabetes

Peanuts—and their buttery spread—are naturally low in carbs so they can help prevent blood sugar spikes. They’re a perfect quick and easy low-carb snack for people with type 2 diabetes.

Of course, you can’t spoon your way through the whole jar of this creamy spread. Any peanut butter buff knows that this pick is high in calories (nearly 100 per tablespoon), so it’s best to limit yourself to a two-tablespoon serving size.

And not all PBs are created equal, so when you’re shopping look for natural varieties made without added partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats) and other suspect ingredients.

Check out these tasty ideas to see just how easy it is to incorporate the healthy spread into your diet.

  • Make a healthier PB&J sandwich for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You can use any nut butter to whip up this fast and easy bite. 

  • Mix in some peanut butter into your hot cereal for a creamy flavor kick, like in this low-carb flax meal peanut butter hot cereal recipe.

  • Throw a tablespoon into your smoothie for extra thickness. 

  • Spread peanut butter on fruit slices for a creamy and crunchy snack.
