Tips on Selecting Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter and Chocolate are one of my favorite combo as you probably have already heard me talking about it 20 times here.

Every once in a blue moon, I will do a sugar detox to sharpen my taste bud just bit. Let me tell you, for someone like me who ALWAYS need a little something sweet, sugar detox is HARD.

BUT, here is my go-to sugar craving kick is:

100% Dark Chocolate and Natural Peanut Butter.

 

It keeps my sugar craving at bay. Trust me, this combination works every time.

Dark Chocolate

 

 

Chocolate (Cacao) is known for its health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, can boost our energy and mood.

When it comes to choosing chocolate, the darker (70% +) the better. I love this Dairy Free Chocolate chip for baking. Or this 100% dark chocolate chips.

 

Peanut Butter

When it comes to choosing what peanut butter to purchase, my number one tip is:

The LESS ingredient the BETTER.

 

My favorite Peanut Butter has only one ingredient – Organic Peanuts.

There are no hydrogenated oils, added sugars or any other ingredients that I can’t pronounce.
