Reduced Fat Peanut Butter

Unless you are allergic to peanuts, peanut butter should be good for you, because peanuts are full of monounsaturated fat, and good food helps you lose weight.

Unfortunately, many fat free brands of peanut butter are sweetened with sugar, and in particular, icing sugar. That’s right, the same kind of sugar used to decorate cakes is being pumped into your peanut butter.

The solution: stick with the all-natural varieties of peanut butter, which contain nothing buy ground up peanuts. You need to keep it refrigerated, but after a few days you will never switch back to the sugar filled kind of peanut butter.

Tomorrow: Fat-free salad dressing.
