Superfood Tip: Peanut butter

Is peanut butter a good superfood to highlight? It does contain over 19 vitamins and minerals, 2 grams of fiber, 7 grams of protein, and no cholesterol all in the very small 2 tablespoon serving size. The catch is that in 2 tablespoons you also get 190 calories and 16 grams of fat. Peanut butter can be a great choice for toddlers and kids, adults needing a calorie boost, and those that can control their portions. Also, it is a great nutrition bang for your buck. You get all this nutrition at just 18 cents per serving.
