PB & Strawberry Crepes

Today I’m pumped to talk about a wonderful whole food, that I sometimes spoon straight out of the container = PEANUT BUTTER 😛

Peanut butter is a superfood of sorts because real peanut butter has 1 ingredient, peanuts! This one simple ingredient is blended into the nutty paste we know and love. Peanuts are an incredible source of healthy fats so I wanted to talk about exactly what that term, healthy fats, means.

When it comes to fats we separate them based on their chemical bonds: trans fats, saturated fats and mono/poly-unsaturated. Trans fats are not body or heart friendly and can be found in chocolate bars, chips, fast food etc. Saturated fats include those found in dairy products, meat and some vegetable oils. Mono or polyunsaturated are the ones we consider heart healthy like those found in fish oils, olive oil, avocados and seed oils like canola and peanuts!

 

First up, PB & Strawberry Crepes! The crepe batter is gluten free and high protein! Paired with some fruit and of course peanut butter and you have a well rounded meal.
