Reduced-Fat Peanut Butter


Speaking of peanut butter — think that by buying the reduced-fat kind that you're making a healthy choice? Think again.

Reduced-fat has the same amount of calories as regular peanut butter, and even more sugar. And while you might think that less fat is still better, consider this — regular peanut butter has monounsaturated ("good") fat, which will help keep you full and keep your portions in check. So, stick with the real stuff. All natural is best, or look for a store that allows you to grind your own.
