Peanut butter anybody? Don't know where I have been up till now, but I only recently discovered my love for peanut butter.

They can help with weight loss, reduce the risk of heart disease and decrease inflammation. (more) When purchasing peanut butter make sure that it has only one ingredient - peanuts.
