I started my day with two glasses of water on an empty stomach then drank my cup of coffee.
I had for breakfast 1 1/2 pain de mie with a tablespoon of peanut butter and a teaspoon of strawberry jam without added sugar with a glass of skimmed milk!
There’s a common misconception about peanut butter being a “bad fatty spread” due to its high caloric and fat content. However, studies have shown and confirmed that eating peanuts can lower the risk for coronary heart disease by lowering the total cholesterol, LDL levels (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides. Its high content in monounsaturated fats makes it a heart friendly spread.Yet, moderation must remain the key when having peanut butter !
