Dr Oz: Daily Peanut Butter Recommendation
Dr Oz shared that there may be one particular health food that you’re not eating: peanuts. He surprised his entire audience with peanuts and explained that eating them can lower your risk of heart disease, which means they’re great for your overall heart health.
He then shared that you should eat at least 20 peanuts three times a week. There are some great ways to get your peanuts, including peanut butter. Peanut Butter & Co is known for their all-natural approach and unique flavors. Dr Oz then welcomed the self-proclaimed peanut queen to his show, who explained that she actually grew up on a peanut farm. Her dad still owns and operates the farm, and she absolutely loves peanuts in any form.
Dr Oz: Eat More Peanut Butter!
Dr Oz then shared that 20 peanuts is about the same as one tablespoon-full of peanut butter. That means Dr Oz just gave you a reason to indulge in peanut butter three times a week. To get some peanut butter into your diet, you can mix peanut butter and Greek yogurt together and put them into a wonton wrapper, with a chocolate-covered pretzel on top.
You can also make peanut butter banana bread or a spicy peanut butter sauce.
Dr Oz: On-The-Go Peanut Butter Parfait
One great grab and go breakfast is a parfait that you can make out of fat-free Greek yogurt, powdered peanuts, natural peanut butter, honey, strawberries, and granola or peanuts. Just layer the ingredients into a jar and enjoy! It’s an absolutely delicious and healthy breakfast, and a great way to get your daily dose of peanut butter!
The best part about this recipe is that you can add however much or little you want, and layer them just as you would like. I would probably mix the powdered peanuts and Greek yogurt, and be sure to put the strawberries and honey next to each other. But some would go ahead and mix the honey into something. How would you make this delicious parfait? Is there another healthy ingredient you would add? Or perhaps there’s another peanut butter recipe you have to share?
