6. Peanut Butter
Peanut butter is not unhealthy as long they are not packed with artificial flavoring and chemical ingredients.
It is found that people who eat peanut butter every day are healthier than those who stay away from peanut butter. A key blame on peanut butter was that it is high in fat. But 80 percent of the fat it contains comes from healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated oils. In addition, peanut butter is a high-protein food with lots of vitamin E, niacin, folic acid, magnesium, and antioxidants.
We recommend that you buy natural peanut butter made from nothing other than ground peanuts, or buy commercial peanut butter which doesn’t have trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, or much sodium.
Many a time we are said to avoid eating bananas, just because they are high in carbohydrates and calories when compared to other fruits. However, bananas are supposed to have a low glycemic load, which is a rate at which food is able to raise blood glucose level after a meal.
Bananas contain low fat and sodium. But they are packed with potassium, vitamin A, folic acid, and fiber. Calories are not excessive when eating half a banana, the equivalent of one serving.
