Peanut Butter as a Healthy Snack for when you’re Craving
When we’re struck by craving between meals, the natural instinct is to reach for unhealthy foods like chocolate or sugary foods that will give us an instant boost of energy (read, sugar). But on the other side of the snacking is the blood sugar crash that follows after and tires us out again. Nutritious snacks like peanut butter have been studied extensively to find out how healthy they are. The results are encouraging.
One study reports peanuts are a rich source of healthy compounds like phenolic acids, resveratrol, flavanoids, and phytosterols that help to block cholesterol from the foods you eat. This is the reason peanut butter is recommended for heart health, even though it contains some saturated fats. Like olive oils, tofu and other “healthy” foods with some amount of saturated fats, peanut butter also contains a host of wholesome ingredients that makes it healthy overall.
Peanut butter is also full of fibre, vitamins and minerals like potassium, that your body needs to function. There is evidence that people who include peanut butter or peanuts regularly in their diet are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes or heart disease than those who don’t take peanuts.
Low-calorie Bar for Guilt-free Snacking
The USANA Peanut Butter Bar is very low calorie, containing 110 calories in each bar. At the same time, it satisfies your craving and gives you an additional boost of nutrients. It also contains less sugar than most other peanut butter bars, with only 3 mg of sugar in each bar. You can enjoy these bars guilt-free and without any fears of reversing your weight management efforts. The bar is also gluten-free, so it’s easy on your gut.
Nutrition bars tend to be full of processed ingredients and chemical additives. But USANA Peanut Butter Bar only contains natural ingredients that are listed in the ingredients’ list. There are no unnecessary sugars or fillers that make your bar unwholesome. At the same time, there is no compromise on flavour. All nutrition bars are not created equal, but these bars you can rely on to contain good quality ingredients.
The Benefits of Fibre and Apple Cider Vinegar Packed In
The Peanut Butter Bar is filled with fibre from the oats and peanuts, and the benefits of apple cider vinegar. Most of the fibres in oats are soluble, coming from a fibre called beta-glucan. Some insoluble fibres in the form of cellulose, lignin and hemicellulose are also present in oats.
Together, the soluble and insoluble fibers ensure regularity of gut movements and a well-oiled digestive system. Fibers also increase satiation and slow down digestion. You’re likely to be full for longer and feel fewer cravings if your body gets a good amount of fibre.
You may smell something familiar with your snack bar. Apple cider vinegar is packed with health benefits and also has that all familiar aroma. ACV may also provide other health benefits that have made it a household name for thousands of years.
Apple cider vinegar is also been under the spot light for its weight management benefits. In one study, participants who took apple cider vinegar lost more weight and had lower total cholesterol than those who took a placebo. They also had slightly higher levels of HDL or “good cholesterol”. So it smells great, it tastes nice and it helps lose weight – get that in my belly!
